Title

Long-term environmental impact of plastic contamination produced during COVID-19

Abstract

Majority of the million tonnes of plastic manufactured each year is discarded after single use. Plastic food containers ,bottles, gloves and cups that end up in landfills and the environment could survive hundreds of years. Moreover the widespread use, fabrication and disposal of personal protective equipment during COVID 19 has resulted in further increase of plastic trash posing a serious threat to the environment. Every month, approximately 129 billion face masks and 65 billion plastic gloves are used and discarded around the world. Plastic can infiltrate the animal and human food web after breaking down into micro and nanoscopic fragments as a result of physical. Chemical or biological activities in the environment. As a result, plastic management programmes must be more robust, with a focus on preventing the entry of micro and nanoplastics into the environment.In the present article we have discussed how worldwide plastic production increased during COVID-19 and how this contributed to short and long-term environmental repercussions .Improper disposal of the plastic in oceans and on land would jeopardise marine creatures and, as a result, human lives. This review will aid individuals in comprehending plastic usage and its environmental repercussions in the event of a pandemic such as COVID-19.
