WHO recommends liming for basic in-situ sanitary measures

Recently, the World Health Organization issued a guide presenting sanitary measures, hygiene and waste management during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Liming is recommended as one of the basic in-situ sanitary measures, applicable for sites that are not connected to the sewerage network. In these cases, waste treatment involves using lime slurry, mixed with the biological wastes coming from suspected or confirmed Covid-19 cases.
