under the topic ‘Waste Management in COVID-19’ we have studied the problems occurring during waste management & their disposal specially biomedical wastes during critical situations and tried to find out some better solutions for them than available ones . For project we have used the resources like internet, topic related articles , research papers etc. We have also visited an hospital for data collection regarding hospital’s daily waste management and processes like collection of waste , separation , treatment etc. to make the project very precise, practical & effective also. So using resources and by analysing the data we have found some solutions for safe treatment of biomedical waste which was our main focus .
