If it's on my partner's body, I squeeze it and disinfect it. If it's on me, I disinfect it and leave it alone.

I don't think that reverance or respect for the dead needs the dead to be hidden from sight completely. It is the attitude that you bring, as a witness to a dead body, that matters, not the display and witnessing of a dead body, per se.
