The number of deaths from coronavirus in Tucumán remains at an average of 20 cases per day; however, there is no risk of collapse in cemeteries. The pandemic modified many of the rituals of farewell to a loved one.

In the case of deaths that are not as a consequence of the coronavirus, the funeral rooms can perform the funeral service with a capacity of up to 10 people. In general, family members and they take turns rotating to say goodbye to their loved ones. “People understood and learned many things throughout this time,” said Figueroa, “but what we cannot avoid are crowds; we see many people who continue to leave and that is a greater risk of contagion,” he added.
