    My Srilankan collegues are never consulted. There are no water- or soilexperts involved in this analyse. 35 % of the Netherlands lies under sealevel. No waste land available here. Watermanagement is core business in the Netherlands.It has been studied over and over again: the virus does not spread by burying Covid19 victims. Just use good bodybags and coffins.
