Summary

Researchers say that the increased plastic waste in the epidemic is a new form of problem for rivers and oceans.

During the Corona epidemic, 8 million tonnes of plastic waste has been generated worldwide. Out of this, 25 thousand tons of plastic waste has gone into the ocean. According to the report published in the Journal of the National Academy of Sciences, this plastic waste collected in the ocean will be collected in coastal areas or sea level in the next three to four years, which can become a new problem for the world.

According to the report, a small part of the plastic waste will go into the open ocean. After this it will go to the central part of the ocean and a small part of the garbage will be visible there. After this, this waste will start accumulating in the Arctic Ocean.

Scientists say that due to the increase in the use of masks, gloves and face shields during the epidemic, the amount of plastic waste has increased. Researchers say that the increased plastic waste in the epidemic is a new form of problem for rivers and oceans.

Garbage will sink in the Arctic Ocean
According to scientists from Nanjing University in China and the University of California in San Diego, USA, 80 percent of the plastic waste that goes into the Arctic Ocean will sink rapidly. According to the model, this kind of situation will also start appearing in the year 2025. Researchers say that the management of plastic waste will have to be emphasized in the epidemic. Otherwise the situation may worsen.
