when,once a person succumbs to a potentially pandemic/epidemic causing disease, his body is not returned to his relatives for burial but is instead incinerated (usually by government executive order) for obvious sanitary/hygiene reasons in order to prevent further infection and try and stop the rampant pandemic/epidemic from spreading.
all the religious and superstitious spiel aside, and despite the fact that sanitation-hygiene prescribed corpse incineration was inefficiently used during The Black Death epidemic of 1347-1351 in Europe, IMHO sanitation-hygiene prescribed corpse incineration should still be considered as a viable option in treating the current Ebola outbreak in Western Africa
