Don’t do this at home

The Commisioner for Health in Ebonyi State, Nigeria, has banned the practice of home embalming of corpses.

Dr. Daniel Umezuruike said: “Any mortician that indulges in this act is a disgrace to his profession and will be arrested and prosecuted. This is because a lot of diseases can be transmitted through that means.”
