Woman volunteer driving hearse van with COVID-dead bodies in West Bengal


Debasree Bhattacharya, a young lady from Jalpaiguri of West Bengal, is probably the only woman in the state who has started driving a hearse van with COVID dead bodies for their last rites. Pushing away all the stigma and fear associated with COVID, she has started volunteering for NGO Green Jalpaiguri while no driver was available for driving the hearse van.

Debasree started driving an ambulance in the last week of May for the NGO, carrying Covid positive patients to hospitals free of charge. She herself has recovered from COVID-19. People across localities are praising her selfless effort.
