Listen: Over 1,000 Meat & Poultry Factory Workers Have Tested Positive For Covid 19.

: 06/04/2020 - 15:28

1,048 meat and poultry factory workers have tested positive for Covid 19.

The Irish Farmers' Journal reports that there are 19 clusters of coronavirus in factories and over 2,300 workers have been tested.

Despite the increase in the number of clusters in factories, just seven factories have had all employees tested by the HSE.

It is understood that many factories severely affected by the virus are now returning to full capacity.
