COVID-19 Bereavement Unit Built at Sheba for Families to Say Their Final Goodbyes
The new isolated bereavement unit enables family members to express farewell to their loved ones and experience an essential part of the mourning process.
Tens of thousands of people worldwide have died as a result of coronavirus COVID-19, and in most cases, families were unable to visit and say goodbye, even after death. At Sheba’s Bereavement Unit, families can see the deceased safely through a large glass window. This design eliminates the risk of infection from the body, which may still carry the virus.
