In the Islamic tradition, the deceased are buried and not cremated. In light of the pandemic, Masjid Nagoya is receiving inquiries by Muslims worried they might be cremated. In the “Act on the Prevention of Infectious Diseases and Medical Care for Patients with Infectious Diseases.” (Law number: Act No. 114 of 1998), it is mentioned, “the corpses contaminated or suspected to have been contaminated with pathogens of a Class I Infectious Disease, a Class II Infectious Disease, a Class III Infectious Disease or a Novel Influenza Infection, etc. must be cremated”. However, that passage is followed by “provided, however, that the burial of those corpses may be allowed if adequate disinfection has been completed and the permission of the prefectural governor has been obtained”. Aichi prefecture, upon being inquired, instructed us to “not open the bag in which the deceased body is contained during transportation in order to prevent infections”. It is highly likely that at least in Aichi prefecture, permission for burial may be granted (graveyard used for burial will be in other prefectures).
