We often see House Full boards put up outside movie halls and multiplexes when the number exceeds the capacity. But due to the Covid-19 second wave, the crematoriums are now putting Housefull boards outside the facilities.

As a result of crematoriums dedicated for Covid-19 receiving a rush of the corpses of Covid-19 patients, the relatives of the patients are struggling to get their loved ones cremated.

The Covid-19 second wave has hit India so hard that the hospitals, morgues, and crematoriums dedicated for Covid-19 patients across the countries are overwhelmed. The staff members are working for extra hours.

Karnataka has been receiving a flood of corpses of Covid-19 patients, since the inception of the second wave. Housefull board appeared outside the Covid-19 crematorium at the Chamrajpet area.

Even the 13 electric crematoriums in the capital city Bengaluru were unable to meet the demand forcing the organisers to put up a Housefull signboard. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has received the land of 230 acres from the state government to cremate the bodies.

In the last 24 hours, Karnataka added as many as 44,438 COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours. With 239 people breathing their last in the same period, the total Covid-19 casualties rose to 16,250.
