Over 100 Workers Test Positive for Covid-19 at a Slaughterhouse in Britanny France


A slaughterhouse in the western Cotes d’Armor region in Britanny has reported that a total of 109 people have tested positive for Covid-19.

The French regional health authorities said yesterday that some 818 people have been tested at the plant, following what became a second wave of testing for the coronavirus.

Those diagnosed as having the disease are being contacted by employee insurance firms that have identified all their contacts at risk of catching the illness, which will require them to respect two-week quarantines, take tests and wear masks.

The cases follow coronavirus outbreaks at meat plants not only in France but also in Germany, Spain, Australia, the United States, and Brazil where people tend to work in close proximity.
