Burial Fund for those who have succumbed to Coronavirus

It would be very helpful to grieving families if the government provided a burial fund for those who have died from the coronavirus.
Apparently, New York City is burying some of the victims of the virus until family members can claim them. There are probably many families who are not financially able to claim their loved ones for burial.

The government should look into providing a burial fund.

2. Yeah it's not a feel good thing. People don't tend to want to donate for burials and funerals

I am a pediatric hospice nurse and can tell you there is soooo much money for children's wish organizations. But, there are no foundations to help with funerals.

I can't imagine what it's like in NYC now for so many people who can't work and so many funerals. It's heart breaking.
