A TOTAL of 28 Top Glove factories in Klang, Selangor will be shuttered in stages following the increase in Covid-19 infection cases involving factory workers.
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the gradual closure will be coordinated by the Selangor State Security Working Committee together with the management of Top Glove.
“To date, the Health Ministry (MoH) has conducted 5,794 screenings on Top Glove factory workers where 1,889 positive Covid-19 cases were recorded.
“Today alone, 1,067 positive cases were found among Top Glove employees,” he said in his daily press conference today.
Previously, a 14-day Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) was implemented at the Top Glove Corp Bhd’s foreign workers’ hostel in Meru, Klang.
