I figured they'd cremate everyone.
Isn't the rumor going around that a 1918 Spanish flu victim was exhumed, and flu cells revived or something like that?
Scientists recreate deadly spanish flu
His team used pieces of virus taken from preserved samples from 1918 victims, as well as from the corpse of a victim dug up from a frozen grave in Alaska in 1998.
They used these pieces to make a replica of the 1918 virus and brought it back to "life" - viruses are not truly alive like other microbes - by combining it with modern influenza virus pieces and growing it in bacteria.
Resurrecting the 1918 Flu Pandemic
Back in 2005 some researchers journeyed to the Alaskan permafrost to dig up some bodies of victims of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic that killed 50-100 million people worldwide as World War 1 came to a close. They were able to recover the virus from these bodies because they have been frozen since burial.

Cremation would be a much, much better idea.

The cement vaults?...Where is the opening ?
As for the mass grave...now that looks unreal. Hell that can be for war, flu, a combination of both. The cement vaults thought, those look skeptical to me.
