Bulgaria: COVID-19 in Bulgaria: 18 Infected in a Tailoring Company in Krichim

A tailoring company in Krichim is the latest heart of  COVID-19 in Bulgaria. According to NOVA, 18 of those working there tested positive for coronavirus.

The company has two sewing workshops in Krichim and in Chirpan. Out of a total of 76 tested employees in the workshop in Krichim, 18 tested positive. This happened after the owner of the company decided to test the employees, because last week there was an employee in the workshop who was infected with a coronavirus.

The workshop is closed, complete disinfection is performed. It is under quarantine and will remain closed for 14 days.

"All employees who have tested positive are in good health. They do not have common symptoms, which are typical for the virus ", said the manager of the sewing workshop Vaska Baklarova

"It's not clear how they got infected. On the 26th, on Friday, we received information that our employee, who has been in hospital for two weeks since June 15, had given a positive test. That's why we decided, because we are a company with high social responsibility, to keep our employees calm, to test each of them, "she explained.

He added: "RHI did not have to quarantine the company because the employee had no contact with other people for two weeks. Unfortunately, a lot of positive samples came out. "
