In a story for Yahoo News, the CDC says that in the event of an Ebola outbreak in the U.S., bodies of the deceased would be required to be buried within "hermetically sealed caskets", which would prevent the escape of microbes during funerals.

I remember part of the counter argument at that time was that those "containers were too big for coffins. You could put ten bodies into just one, they said.

What is wrong with putting the body in a sealed body bag. That is how they transport bodies all the time.
Sealed body bag + normal coffin + 5ft of dirt, WTF, what is going to get out of that!
Why the sudden need for 'special' caskets.
This is just another chapter in the 'let's scare the crap out of the people'

Hermetically sealed coffins? Give me a #ing break.
When this gets out of hand, the only plausible solution to handling the volume of dead bodies will be coffinless mass graves or incineration.
why would they use coffins to bury infected dead? what happened to good old fashioned kill it with fire cremation status?
