LIVE | GGD will test slaughterhouse Helmond employees for corona | Inland


The GGD will test NVWA veterinarians and their assistants from the Quality Inspection Animal Sector who work in a pig slaughterhouse in Helmond for the coronavirus. Two judges working in Helmond and a vet from the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) have tested positive for Covid-19

This is confirmed by the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) after reports by RTL Nieuws. An NVWA spokesperson reported that about fifty people are being tested. The GGD later decides whether other people who work in the slaughterhouse in Helmond should also be tested.

In a slaughterhouse in Groenlo, 600 employees were quarantined at home for two weeks. The Safety Region of North and East Gelderland decided to do this after consultation with the GGD. The GGD had previously announced that 45 employees had tested positive for corona. Home quarantine should prevent the coronavirus from spreading further.
