In part 1 of our conversation, Dr. Ashok Agarwal, President of the Indian Society of Hospital Waste Management, highlighted the different kinds of biomedical waste in India, what COVID-19 biomedical waste looks like and how much India has been producing.
In this second part, Dr Agarwal talks about just how biomedical waste management in India can be made better. “It’s one thing to have the Biomedical Waste Management Rules 2016, but implementation on the ground level leaves much to desire”, he says in conversation with Swagam Dasgupta.
