There is a single drainage which is blocked.Most of the relatives of the deceased are only wearing flip-flops(slippers),some are barefoot and barehand,while others try to protect themselves with gloves and masks.Gloves, masks, and bits and pieces of clothing litter the floor which is wet, dirty and bloody.
