A new scientific report finds that more than 25,000 tons of plastic waste linked to the CCP virus pandemic have been dumped into the ocean. This exacerbates an already out-of-control global plastic waste problem.
The study points out that the majority of plastic waste comes from hospitals. It is caused by poor management and disposal of large amounts of personal protection and medical waste. Discarded plastic waste can drift long distances in the ocean, potentially causing injury or even death to marine wildlife.
Some studies have noted that by 2030, the production of plastics will surpass coal in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The global environmental crisis caused by the CCP virus is a constant threat to the future of humanity.
