Disposal of Infectious Covid-19 Waste
It is no surprise that with a global pandemic, comes an increase in infectious clinical waste, whether it be from Covid-19 testing facilities or increased hospital admissions. The management and treatment of such waste has become a challenge for the healthcare industry.
A typical Covid-19 patient can produce roughly double the amount of waste compared to a non-covid patient. Most of this waste will be due to additional PPE, cleaning products and wipes – but this all needs to be disposed of in a safe and secure manner.
