In this Thursday, April 16, 2020, photo, an earthmover drives past the body of a woman who died of COVID-19 during her burial at a cemetery in New Delhi, India. Of all the devastating consequences the coronavirus pandemic has brought to the world, the most painful may well be the lonely burials. It has forced a change in the way those left behind are mourning their dead, upending rituals carried out from generations. The deceased are not allowed a final hug from their loved ones to say farewell. And sometimes, they don’t even get a proper burial. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup)
