According to CNN, one woman whose husband died has been stuck with his body at home. There is no way for her to take the body out of the house as state rules prohibit coming out of the house or making contact with people.

The woman has been pleading for help. Even authorities have come forward to say that they would not be able to assist her in any way due to quarantine restrictions.
The woman’s husband had known about the symptoms but did not go to the hospital. He was soon found to have the virus and died on Monday at 2 am.
Giancarlo Canepa, mayor of Borghetto Santo Spirito, said in clear terms about her administration’s inability to help the woman. “Yes, it is true she is still there with the body and we won’t be able to remove it until Wednesday morning.

“ She added that no one is allowed to approach the body due to protocols and added in this regard, “Unfortunately, we have a security protocol we must follow.”

Canepa added that the woman’s husband refused to go to a local hospital to be treated for the disease despite being persuaded to do so.
Neighbors of the woman said she could be heard crying from the balcony and calling out for help. The story was reported in local media and has since been reported in international publications as well.
