In the case of a major outbreak, I would think that those people wouldn't have the choice. It would probably become law regardless of a persons wishes or religious views.
Cremation will help prevent spread of the disease. As another member posted burying bodies would be bad because they could be dug up and reintroduce the virus to the surviving population.

A WARNING was issued this week that Worcestershire businesses should raise awareness among their staff of the signs of swine flu.
Communication about the disease is key to pandemic survival, according to the Chamber of Commerce Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
The business organisation said individuals must 'self isolate' if they start to show symptoms consistent with the virus.
Gary Woodman, policy executive at the Chamber, said: "It is imperative the workforce is well informed to minimise a further spread of the infection.
"It is also important to have pandemic contingency plans that define what action plans kick in if workforce absenteeism rates exceed a high level or if offices have to be closed."
