The outbreak in the slaughterhouse of the Tonnies – Meanwhile the i continue to increase positive among the slaughterhouse employees of Guetersloh, with another 300 cases of contagion from COVID-19, bringing the total number of infections to 1,331 out of a total of 6,139 workers. Laschet, after visiting the slaughterhouse has for the moment excluded a new one lockdown at the regional level, but even if there is a “huge pandemic risk”, the infection is clearly localized within the slaughterhouse and there is no “significant jump” in the rest of the population, he said Laschet. All the employees of the slaughterhouse were placed in quarantine, but the measure it may not be enough, because in the meantime the thousands of workers could in turn have infected family and friends, who in turn could have spread the virus. The discovery of the outbreak sparked a wave of protests against the owner of the plant, Clemens Toennies, whose resignation is requested. In the meantime, the federal health authorities they updated the number of infections and deaths in the country, respectively 189,822 and over 8,880.
