Dead Bodies Caught Up in Bureaucracy, Undertaker Unable to Move Corpses

On April 1st, Guangzhou implemented a new regulation requiring death certificates to be issued by the neighbourhood committee and local hospital. The undertaker cannot move a body without a death certificate, and when those responsible for issuing the certificates are not working, one must wait until they go back to work before they can obtain a death certificate. In one case a body had to remain in a nursing home for over 60 hours before it could be moved.One highly up-voted netizen comment said “One is not allowed to die during a holiday.”
