    Those who hide the illness should be considered as terrorists and sealed off in their homes. Terrorists could not do more damage.

    Not withstanding what is articulated by the so called Muslim Leaders the dead body should be cremated as per WHO guidelines. Allow the government to handle the situation. HDG

    Many people are using this as an opportunity to indulge in casual racism. What is the harm in burying the body in a body bag? They are burying the dead in both Spain and Italy. We may not understand it but Moslems believe the body has to be intact to be resurrected on judgement day. So just show a bit of Buddhist tolerance if you can manage such a thing. Not everything needs to be rational. I am sure there are people who think its a waste of public money sprinkling pirith pan on the land using air force helicopters.
