سئل العلامة عبد المحسن العباد حفظه الله :
عن الذي يموت بسبب مرض الكورونا هل يسمى مبطون ؟
يدخل تحت المطعون الذي يموت بالطاعون، ويرجى له الشهادة.
وسئل: هل يُغسل الميت بسبب الكورونا ؛خشية العدوى ؟
فقال:إذا غلب الظن ويخشى من تغسيله وملامسته فيُيَمّم.

Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin al-'Abbād was asked about the person who dies due to the Coronavirus. Is he (considered) one who has died from a stomach ailment?
He answered saying: "He falls under the one who has died from a plague. And martyrdom is hoped for him."
And also he was asked:
"Is the body of the deceased to be washed if it is feared that the Corona virus will spread?"
He said: "If that's most probable and it's feared that washing the body or touching it (will spread the disease), tayammum is to be performed."
