Thai factories with over 10% infection rate must “bubble and seal”

Thai factories with over 10% infection rate must “bubble and seal”

THURSDAY, August 26, 2021

Factories where more than 10 per cent of employees are infected with Covid-19 must adopt the “bubble and seal” measure, health officials said on Thursday.

The directive covers Thailand’s 3,300 large factories (200 workers or more) and is aimed at halting serious outbreaks in factories that are hampering Thailand’s industrial sector and spawning cluster infections in communities.

The Department of Health said that factory operators who find that more than 10 per cent of their workers are infected must notify local disease control officials within three hours and adopt the bubble-and-seal measure immediately. They must not continue to operate under normal restrictions, it warned.
