The communicable disease committee, in Thailand’s central province of Ayutthaya, has ordered the 7 day closure of a medical equipment production plant in Sena district for major disinfection and cleanup, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 

About 5,000 workers at the plant have been placed in quarantine, after 51 were found to be infected, according to Dr. Phira Areerat, the provincial health chief.

 

Governor Panu Yamsri said that, according to an initial investigation, about 3,400 of some 5,000 workers at the plant are at high risk, because they were in close and regular contact with those already infected.

Let's hope that this plant is not producing equipment that is vital to the effort against the virus.

C'mon reporters, please ask how many tests carried out to get that result....otherwise 51 is a meaningless number.

 

Tests will be carried out over a period of days so as not to jack-up the daily reported figures.. 

you know how bad that would look if they were added all in one day.
