Migrants in Lima, Peru work as body collectors amid COVID-19

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, in Peru's capital Lima Venezuelan migrants work as body collectors.

These Venezuelan migrants to Peru are on the frontline of the pandemic.

It is their dangerous job to recover the bodies of COVID-19 victims from their homes.

Working for a funeral home they may collect as many as 10 bodies a day.

This man killed himself when he found out he was infected with the Coronavirus.

Jhoan Faneite and his Venezuelan co-workers work six days-a-week.

They go when other funeral homes refuse to.
