Are slaughterhouses turning into #coronavirus factories? | Euronews
Experts say meat processing plants are ripe for the virus to spread, as they’re often cold, damp, and keep employees in close contact. But much of the #transmission of the virus may occur away from work: where employees live and share meals.
“It’s very important to realise that workers in these plants – and this is unpopular work – are often #migrant workers, foreign workers who will live in dormitories. And they live and travel very closely together,” Professor James Wood, the head of Cambridge University’s Veterinary School, told Euronews.
“So transmission, where #clusters occur, maybe occurring both in the home environment from travelling to work, as well as actually in the workplace itself.”
