China's coronavirus epicenter boosts medical waste treatment

According to the article released by Reuters "China's coronavirus epicenter boosts medical waste treatment..." on February 13th, 2020,
The Chinese province at the center of the coronavirus outbreak has almost doubled its medical waste handling capacity after media images of bags of garbage piling up uncovered in hospital yards raised public concerns over secondary infections.

According to Newster R&D dept. the management of HCW requires a careful analysis of the type, dimension, and organization of the healthcare facility. Established the priority to minimize the infectious waste produced, in emergency conditions the two most important goals are to guarantee the efficacy of the sterilization process and reduce as much as possible the storage time and transport. It means that on-site instal-lations of sterilization units such as Newster machines, allow to reach both targets: considering the low resistance of coronavirus against temperature, FHT process reaching 150 °C could be a useful solution in order to improve the infection prevention and control through HCW, with the respect of Stockholm convention standard.
