  1. The virus was like a head cold when I had it … Lost my sense of taste and smell…felt dizzy.. but would say that it's not worth these means to avoid it

  2. 2,300 tons of plastic waste per day at a 11% recycle rate. That's a lot of unused resources right there.

  3. As I mentioned in my previous comments, the waste generated by handling Covid crisis will cause serious irreparable damage to environment which in turn affect every life forms. Most of the PPE and test kits are made of cheap plastic and plastic fibres that can bring several pandemics in short time even with proper disposal management. If Hong Kong alone can generate such enormous quantity in less than 4-6 weeks, just image the amount generated by mainland China for the past 4 weeks. Do not forget the whole world too.

  5. Specific masks work for different aerosols, dust, chemicals, or sands, and the fact plastics are being used is unintelligent.

  6. Why doesn't wion talk India's atrocities against Kashmir, and other Indian minorities,. And how under Narendra Modi India Economic growth had slowed significantly down from 2015 onwards to present. Because WION IS A HYPOCRITE!!!

  7. COVID masks are the NEW cigarette butts…..check out your local car parks and gutters……plenty of masks dropped by idiots….very few butts!!!

  8. If supposedly the virus does not survive on paper or natural textiles why are they not making protective gear from natural and biodegradable materials for protection and better for the environment?

  9. Plastic bags & straws, not ok
    Disposable mask, Very OK!

    It's not logical, you wear Disposable mask, gloves to protect yourself, afterwards it's the garbage collectors who have handle your crap.

  10. The campaign must start at the source. Factories making plastic must be stopped and then people will become more resourceful to use an alternative, like not using single use plastic shopping bags.
