Urgent hospital waste disposal
The letter written by Diya Lizbeth Jerry from River Valley residence in Kottayam addresses the inappropriate dumping of hospital waste near their residential area. The waste disposal by St. Mary’s hospital has caused the contamination of surface and groundwater, leading to health issues, including illnesses in children. Despite reporting the matter to authorities, no action has been taken. Diya urges the recipient to either repurpose the land or ensure proper disposal of the hospital waste, emphasizing the critical threat it poses to human life and the environment.
