Waste Management from Patients Being Treated for Mpox Virus


The United States recently had a case of Mpox virus diagnosed in a patient in Dallas County, Texas. Organizations in the U.S. now preparing for the potential need to handle patients under investigation or patients with the Mpox virus must also consider both the solid and liquid waste associated with such patients. It is also important to develop a communications strategy to alleviate concerns from the general public associated with both the solid and liquid waste.
