By default, you would just be buried locally according to the local procedures. In particular, if some burial practices are forbidden or there is a short delay to dispose of the remains, these rules still apply. Being a foreign national would not necessarily prevent the local authorities from proceeding with a burial.

Wanderlust maintains a more-or-less up to date list of countries that still allow travel. However, on closer inspection all the countries listed as "open" have either suspended visas on arrival (eg.

Another wrinkle in the ESTA saga: the UK FCO have changed their advice and state that
You’ll need a visa to enter the USA. The Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) visa waiver programme is not currently in operation due to the imposition of new travel restrictions on those travelling from the UK.
