Top Glove: 80% of workers at Meru plants tested for Covid-19


KLANG: About 80% of workers at Top Glove plants in Meru here have undergone Covid-19 testing and the exercise is expected to be completed by Dec 4 this year.

Latex medical glove maker Top Glove Corporation Bhd said its workers were undergoing mass testing.

“Our factories will reopen in stages once our workers have tested negative, undergone the mandatory quarantine period and are cleared to work by the relevant authorities," it said in a statement on Friday (Nov 27).

The company said it wads doing all necessary to curb the spread of Covid-19 at its premises, adding that 28 factories in Meru here are temporarily shut for cleaning.

“This will facilitate the deep cleaning and sanitisation of the premises, to ensure the safety and well-being of its people and the surrounding communities, and also enable some maintenance work to be carried out, ’’ it said.

Top Glove became the nation’s biggest infection group in the Teratai cluster, with thousands of its foreign workers infected with Covid-19.

Top Glove also said it was also working closely with the relevant authorities to ensure the required standard operating procedures to cut the infection chain were in place.

It also assured its stakeholders that the company was committed in playing its role to prevent the further spread of Covid-19 and at the same time supporting the needs of all interested and relevant parties.
