COVID-19: Who is dealing with 2,900kg waste produced from 15 quarantine centres in Bengaluru?

In just 15 quarantine centres the BBMP has housed people returning or visiting from other regions. People displaying symptoms such as cold and fever undergo tests, which results in throat swab samples and other products for the procedure. This has resulted in the generation of a whopping 2,900kg of bio medical waste.

 

According to D Randeep, this figure is high but not large enough to be worried about, as all necessary arrangements are made, from collection to transportation to burning of the same.

 

To keep pourakarmikas safe, the BBMP has given this task to bio medical waste agencies who deal with it as per standard operating procedures and burn the waste so that the threat of possible infection from these products will also be destroyed.
