Saharapur. Biomedical waste, which is becoming a problem worldwide, has decreased in the Corona period. From Saharanpur, which used to generate more than 350 kg of biomedical waste per day, it is now 250 kg.
Meerut-based Synergy collects biomedical waste from all government and non-government hospitals in Saharanpur. The company’s employees load biomedical waste into vehicles every day and bring it to Meerut, where it is disposed of. While in the past 350 kg or more of biomedical waste came from Saharanpur daily, during the Corona period it is only 100 kg per day. Accordingly, biomedical waste has decreased by three thousand kilograms, or 30 quintals in a month. Now, surgical biomedical wastes have become negligible in biomedical wastes. 90 percent of biomedical waste is associated with the corona, this includes PPE kits, globs, masks, etc.
These are the reasons
In the second corona wave, operations in state hospitals were closed.
Most of the biomedical waste was generated by surgery.
The number of operations in private hospitals also fell significantly.
The number of accidents has also decreased due to the lower volume of traffic.
Up to 350 kg of biomedical waste was transported daily from Saharanpur to Meerut, but in the second corona wave the amount fell to 250 kg per day. This means that up to 100 kg of biomedical waste has been reduced. Most of this waste is associated with covid hospitals.

Saharapur. Biomedical waste, which is becoming a problem worldwide, has decreased in the Corona period. From Saharanpur, which used to generate more than 350 kg of biomedical waste per day, it is now 250 kg.

Meerut-based Synergy collects biomedical waste from all government and non-government hospitals in Saharanpur. The company’s employees load biomedical waste into vehicles every day and bring it to Meerut, where it is disposed of. While on normal days 350 kg or more of biomedical waste came daily from Saharanpur, it dropped to 100 kg per day during the Corona period. Accordingly, biomedical waste has decreased by three thousand kilograms, or 30 quintals in a month. Now, surgical biomedical wastes have become negligible in biomedical wastes. 90 percent of biomedical waste is related to the corona crisis, this includes PPE kits, globs, masks, etc.

These are the reasons

In the second corona wave, operations in state hospitals were closed.

Most of the biomedical waste was generated by surgery.

The number of operations in private hospitals also fell significantly.

The number of accidents has also decreased due to the lower volume of traffic.
