Covid-19: About 360 Top Glove employees taken by bus for treatment at hospitals after testing positive

KLANG: About nine bus loads of medical glove manufacturer Top Glove Corp Bhd’s workers were whisked away by the Health Department Monday (Nov 23) night.

Although the exact numbers are yet to be known, it is believed that slightly more than 360 workers were taken away to the Sungai Buluh and Kuala Lumpur Hospitals to be treated for Covid-19.

Sources say the men were those who tested positive for Covid-19 Monday.

Earlier Monday, Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said all 28 Top Glove plants in the Kapar area will be closed in stages for mass testing of the workers.

This follows the latest turn of events where some 1,067 Covid-19 positive cases emerged from the Top Glove-linked Teratai cluster on Monday alone.

When contacted, Klang district officer Mohd Zainal Mohd Nor confirmed that all those who were being taken away had tested positive.

“By the looks of it, the numbers appear to be on the rise," said Mohd Zainal, who is also the Klang District Disaster Management Committee chief.
