You can imagine how frustrating it is that I have to wait for the doctor who does the forensic post-mortem because he comes once a week.I have to wait again for the Covid test. In this difficult economic environment it is expensive to run a funeral for two weeks. It is also painful as a parent to be unable to bury my son for this long.He said Covid-19 tests results were expected on Thursday but until Saturday they had not been released adding that the blood samples taken were nowhere to be found.More: Daily News
