During the epidemic, the disposable mask after use may be covered with bacteria and viruses. In addition, cities in many cities implement garbage classification and treatment. It is recommended not to discard them at will. Netizens have resorted to tricks such as boiling hot water, burning, shredding and throwing away. These treatment methods are unscientific. Should be classified according to the situation.
● Medical institutions: Disposable masks are directly put into medical waste garbage bags as medical waste. ● Ordinary healthy people: the risk is relatively small, and it can be directly thrown into the “harmful garbage” trash can. ● For people suspected of having an infectious disease: When visiting a doctor or receiving quarantine, the used disposable mask should be handed over to relevant staff for treatment as medical waste. ● For patients with fever, cough, sneezing, or people who have been in contact with such people, use 75% alcohol to sterilize, then put the disposable mask in a sealed bag and throw it into the trash, or throw the disposable mask into the tras, then sprinkle disinfectant with 84 disinfectant on the disposable mask.
