Judaism and Cremation in time of Emergency

Hello friends,

I’m Italian, not Jewish (i mean, it is a long story but still), and I have a question to ask: in some areas here in Italy that have been hit extremely hard by this pandemics, according to some newspapers, have a big problem at handling all the corpses (morgues have been organized in gyms and fields) and, to tackle the biological risk, they decided that the only possibility was to cremate them: my question is, I know that Judaism do not accept cremation but I also know that many “laws” can be broken if it is the only way to preserve life, what would be the correct way of acting in this case? Cremate them but save many more, or not?

Stay safe you all 🙂
