Ask a mortician
I'm currently reading (and thoroughly enjoying) Caitlin Doughty's book Smoke gets in your eyes & other lessons from the crematory. Death is a scary subject. But Doughty's honest and direct explanations make it a little less so.
Check out this video from her Ask a Mortician web series, where she does her part to curb some of the rampant misinformation surrounding the pandemic. (Keep in mind this video was filmed back in April; the death tolls in New York have significantly declined since then.)
