Video of used PPE kits, masks being ‘washed for resale’ in Madhya Pradesh goes


With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc in India and beyond, masks and PPE kits have become an integral part of our lives. Even as officials across India use stringent measures to ensure that people wear masks while out in public, others are apparently doing their best to reuse COVID-19 gear. A now viral video from Madhya Pradesh’s Satna show individuals purportedly washing masks and PPE suits with the intention of reselling them.

Now, while recycling is an excellent idea, one would be well advised to keep the contagious nature of the virus in mind. As such, washing such items (as shown in the clip) is not particularly reassuring for any who might then wear it. As per news agency ANI, the clip is from a bio-waste plant in Badkhera village.

The clip in question shows several individuals working with countless masks, gloves and PPE kits. Large drums can be seen in the background with colourful protective gear heaped upon them. And many wrapped bundles indicate that the cleaned suits are being packaged.
