How are contaminated liquids from ebola waste handled?
Manager at Biosafety Consulting, LLC
Emory University Hospital has been mentioned as bleaching (contact time 3-5 minutes perhaps) otherwise un-described containers of liquid patient wastes, then flushing into the sanitary sewer system after consultation with their POTW. It could have been they were adding bleach to the toilets.
I have not seen any information on Nebraska, NIH facilities, nor Texas Presbyterian arrangements for same. One article mentions that Texas packed the liquids into the 55 gal drums with solid wastes for incineration
