India: Six garment units in Tirupur turn Covid hotspots, sealed

"Six garment units turn Covid hotspots, sealed", 14 May 2021

Garment units in Tirupur have turned into Covid hotspots, with scores of employees testing positive.

Even as the garment sector decided to shut operations from Friday in Tirupur, six units had to be sealed in the last three days after employees were found infected.

Health authorities in Tirupur said that they tested all employees in textile units that have more than 200 workers.

... Officials said that the infections were caused because of the failure on the part of the garment units to screen employees for temperature every day, check for symptoms and isolate those with symptoms.

... Textile manufacturers said that it was because of the rising number of cases that they have decided to close the units from Friday voluntarily for the next 10 days.
