Covid-19 and waste cycle, hearing of Brusaferro – Chronicle


The president of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) Silvio Brusaferro at a hearing in the Commission of inquiry into the waste cycle.

“Surgical masks can also be used for prolonged use from 2 to 6 hours but there is no evidence to guarantee safe reuse” or even reconditioning. For those of communities “it depends on the material with which they are made” but these “have no filtering power, they only act as a barrier” ù, explained the president of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità Brusaferro.

“It is not recommended to use very sophisticated masks at home. But, according to different contexts, the most appropriate protection tool can be used. “Therefore,” using the appropriate mask for appropriate use could be a slogan to be used “for information campaigns in the population.

“Where the surfaces are kept clean, the virus is easily inactivated, but we must be careful not to overdo it. Disinfections can cause unwanted effects if used extensively and intensively. Because an excess of disinfectants arrives in the drains and enters a cycle”.
