Funeral homes closed in Edomex for operating irregularly

June 22th, 2020

Authorities of the State of Mexico reported the suspension of eleven funeral homes in municipalities of the Valley of Mexico and Toluca, for not complying with the security and hygiene measures established by the authorities to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 pandemic; the closings proceeded after insistent complaints from neighbors, as happened with one of these establishments that operated irregularly in the San Bernardino de Toluca neighborhood.

It should be noted that this is the first report that has been given on the subject since the pandemic was declared in the country and when 28,550 accumulated cases of coronavirus were reported throughout the Edomex and the figure of 3,000 deaths was exceeded, with a total of three thousand 92.

The authorities reported that suspension seals were also placed on establishments for not having the documentation that proves their legal operation, also because the infrastructure of the place does not comply with the regulations and there are no adequate hygienic-sanitary conditions.

They indicated that the COPRISEM verifiers canceled activities of these establishments, in some cases totally and others partially, in the municipalities of Ecatepec, Tecámac, Toluca, Zumpango, Ixtapaluca, Cuautitlán Izcalli, Nezahualcóyotl, Teotihuacán, Santa María Rayón, Xalatlaco and Acolman.

The last suspension was carried out in the municipality of Ecatepec, at a funeral home located next to the municipal palace, because it did not have the current sanitary license that accredited its legal operation, in addition to the fact that the float did not comply with sanitary regulations.

Through a statement, the Secretary of Health indicated that in the municipality of Tecámac the municipal authorities themselves denounced an agency that allegedly used a building where the handling and safeguarding of corpses were carried out improperly. It was detailed that said property was suspended, although in the same way suspension seals were affixed to the private address since the property was neither funeral nor embalming.

As for the municipality of Toluca, at the complaint of the residents of the San Bernardino neighborhood, who pointed out that bodies were allegedly embalmed on a property, the health authority placed suspension stamps on the establishment, in addition to the fact that the ministerial authority is already investigating the facts.
