Making of Covid-19 waste

Irwan Majid Nazir Sufari

THE challenges of Covid-19 go far beyond testing, quarantining and treating people in a medical system on a major scale. There are also mountains of clinical waste that have to be disposed of properly.

The amount of clinical waste generated in the country increased by 27% last month compared with a 17% rise in February following the Covid-19 outbreak.

There are dangers that the coronavirus will spread among rubbish collectors and others if waste is not handled properly.

Masks are considered essential protection against Covid-19 and the demand for the item is overwhelming. – April 5, 2020.
