COVID-19: How to Reduce Some Environmental and Social Impacts?

Voirol, Christian
Published in Annals of Global Health. 2020, vol. 86, no. 1, 139
Abstract The proposed viewpoint seems important at this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, the COVID-19 prevention strategies implemented in the population are based on medical paradigms that generate extremely deleterious social and environmental impacts. Using the occupational health and safety perspective – taking care of myself with recyclables PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) – in place of the medical perspective – taking care of others with disposable PPE – can help to influence and support this important public health reflection.
