Hospitals have always played a key role in the medical industry: with the right equipment, these medical facilities can deal with a huge amount of medical waste each day. However, that role will certainly be put to the test in the following months, as the coronavirus outbreak will bring more and more infected patients that hospital staff will need to treat.
