A Balasore local told the BBC that the air-conditioned hall is big enough to hold all the corpses.

However, officials express concern that the location might not be able to retain the dead for much longer.

Balasore experiences high temperatures, making it difficult to keep the bodies frozen in the extreme heat with current freezing infrastructure. Additionally, a lot of relatives are traveling from distant locations, sometimes from separate states, which makes it harder to identify the deceased.

Nirlipta Mohanty, a local official, told the BBC that “for these reasons it is getting difficult to keep the dead safe for long.”

She continued by saying that they were currently attempting to transport the dead to Bhubaneswar, which has large hospitals and other amenities.

In the commercial park, more than 150 bodies are maintained.
According to Ms. Mohanty, every effort is being made to assist the families. But for those like Sumit Kumar, who had been searching for his uncle Neeraj since the previous evening, that wasn’t enough.

Mr. Kumar claims, “I was able to find his image among those of the dead, but I haven’t been able to find him.

A social worker at the industrial park named Uday Kumar believes that rather than placing support desks in remote locations, the management should position them close to bus and train stations.

Other site employees claim to be worn out and horrified by the extent of the damage.

“I feel awful. Subrat Mukhi, a municipal employee, and his coworkers had been working nonstop since Saturday, assisting relatives in loading bodies into cars and ambulances to transport them to their homes or to the hospital. “I have been working since 8 o’clock last night,” Subrat Mukhi said.

“When I see them, sometimes I start to cry. I imagine how I would feel if I had lost someone, he remarked.
