Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. This is the first case of a dead patient passing on coronavirus anywhere in the world.

The death of the forensic team member was only the second case reported among medical personnel in Thailand.

It appears to be the first case of transmission between the dead and the living in any country.

Thailand reported three additional deaths related to the coronavirus and 29 more cases of infection on Thursday, raising the total tally to 2,672. This makes it hard to get a clear picture of the situation.

An evangelical pastor in America died of COVID-19 just weeks after proudly showing off how packed his Virginia church was - and vowing to keep preaching "unless I'm in jail or the hospital".

"Forensic professionals are unlikely to come into contact with infected patients, but they may have contact with biological samples and corpses", they said.

"At present, there is no data on the exact number of COVID-19 contaminated corpses since it is not a routine practice to examine for COVID-19 in dead bodies in Thailand", the authors wrote. "The disinfection procedure used in operation rooms might be applied in pathology/forensic units too".

But in the UK, Public Health England has advised staff working with bodies of COVID-19 patients that there is a risk.

The Bishop had held a service on March 22, where in a sermon given to a crowd of congregants he said, "I firmly believe that God is larger than this dreaded virus", according to CBS affiliate WTVR.

These were the details of the news Thailand reports 28 new Covid-19 cases, 2 new deaths for this day.
