Dispose of Used Mask Properly Prevents Spread of Infections

dispose of masks

Knowing How to Dispose of used face masks properly is just as important as using the mask to protect ourselves from this terrific pandemic.

We’ve come to face the consequences that arrived with this global pandemic. The virus can last on medical waste (masks and gloves) for a week; this is just enough to break the whole chain. So, we should be aware of not only using the masks but also disposing of them in the right way.

Dispose those used medical things (masks and gloves) in a sealed cover (some other plastic covers like grocery covers etc.) and dispose of them properly in a separate dustbin. Please don’t throw away the used masks, as it can create a worse effect and spread the virus (when they are reused or sent to recycling).

Do you know that a person confirmed with Covid-19 produces 15 times more medical waste than the regular patient? The waste created through the confirmed COVID positive patient produces more waste and that need to be disposed of properly (even the things they’ve used like plates and other household things should get sanitized frequently).
