Biomedical waste is a danger to worldwide public natural wellbeing and with 'plastic footprint' expanding constantly because of the continuous Covid-19 pandemic, worries on plastic waste stifling the planet are mounting. 


As indicated by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), India has been producing almost 146 tons of bio-clinical waste each day because of symptomatic exercises and treatment of Covid-19 patients. Between June 2020 and May 10, 2021, India created 45,308 tons of Covid-19 biomedical waste. This is notwithstanding the 615 tons of biomedical waste a day being created before Covid-19, the contamination control board's information appeared. 

This is an increment of practically 17% in biomedical waste age exclusively in view of the pandemic.

"There has been a general increase and since it is a crisis situation, we are not thinking of plastic but general prevention. The focus is no longer plastic, so that is a problem," news agency PTI quoted Ravi Agarwal, founder-director of the environmental non-profit Toxics Link, saying.
