Aysha Akhter started this petition to Government

I have decided to start this petition in a wake up call for the government to wake up and see how many people are dying from the Covid-19 related deaths. No one has prepared for a day like this to come. Yet we have no choice but to face it. Now with almost 600+ deaths happening every single day there are many families who cannot afford a funeral. It doesn’t matter if your a doctor or an unemployed person we all deserve the same right. The government really needs to step up and pay funeral expenses to families those who have lost someone to this disease. I have personally lost a relative to Covid-19 and can’t even begin to describe that feeling. I respect the government in stepping up to help the NHS and all those who are employed and self employed, but let’s not forget that the daily death toll rate will be increasing every single day till this situation is under control. I request the government to make immediate funeral cost payments to families who have lost a loved one. This petition is not about race or religion but about basic rights we all deserve.
