Again, slaughterhouse COVID-19 epicentre


This 27 May 2020 video from the USA is called Meat-processing plants remain source of concern for new COVID-19 outbreaks.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio, 10 November 2020:

Almost half of the 225 workers of the Limburg province meat processor Verhey Vlees from Nuth are infected with the coronavirus. This is reported by the South Limburg security region. Last week, the meat processor already stopped production after 41 employees had tested positive. After that, that number has increased considerably. The exact number of infections is unknown, says 1Limburg.

More than half of the employees of Verhey Vlees are labor migrants. These labor migrants work for the meat processor through various temporary employment agencies, which is why the source and contact investigation was “a complicated job”, according to the safety region. …

In May, there were also several coronavirus outbreaks in meat processors, including in Apeldoorn and Helmond.
