Nonthaburi workers strike after Covid-hit factory stays open


Workers at a Covid-hit factory in Nonthaburi on Monday demanded that the owner close the factory until it has been cleaned and all workers’ test results have come back.

The protest at the sewing factory in Nonthaburi’s Pakkred district came after 60 of its 1,700 workers were sent to Kasemrad International Hospital and Two Three Hotel after testing positive during proactive screening on Friday and Saturday.

The results of tests on the other workers will be announced today.
