The furnace in Langenthal is running 7 days a week and the shift starts every morning at 4am and often goes on till 10pm. Work didn’t even stop over the Christmas and New Year holidays.

The crematorium’s cold room is packed and a refrigerated container has been brought in to handle the overflow.

One worker, Stefan Oberli, says Covid deniers should come and look at what’s happening at the crematorium.

Last month they handled twice as many than in December 2019
