The pandemic outbreak caused by COVID-19 has been spreading throughout the world including Indonesia. The high number of infection cases and deaths due to Covid-19 and the lack of experience in managing corpses (post mortem) caused by COVID-19 disease creates defiance for forensic practitioners and the general public. Indonesia has extra challenges because there are still people who refuse to bury corpses known to be COVID-19 victims in their areas. This paper reviews and summarizes the experience of how to deal with a corpse case with COVID-19 including how to bury such a corpse hence providing a perspective view for the future.
