8 refrigerators were banned in May due to Covid-19

A report released by the Ministry of Agriculture on Tuesday (16) states that 8 refrigerators were banned in May by agencies such as the Department of Health, Labor Secretariat and Public Ministry of Labor (MPT), due to the risk of transmission of Covid-19 among employees. In the month, 47 slaughterhouses under federal inspection paralyzed their activities in 17 states (Acre, Amazonas, Bahia, Distrito Federal, Goiás, Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Pará, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rondônia, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, São Paulo and Tocantins). Of these outages, 39 were for reasons unrelated to the transmission of the new coronavirus, according to the ministry. The government did not detail which states and units had problems with Covid-19. In Rondônia, a refrigerator in São Miguel do Guaporé (RO) was banned by the Court at the end of May because of mass contamination of Covid-19 among workers, denounced by the Public Prosecutor's Office. More than 260 employees were contaminated and activities returned on June 9. Recently, in Goiás, a refrigerator employee died by Covid-19. He was 36 years old and worked at the company's plant located in the city. His name has not been released. The unit stopped the activities and should return to activities on Friday (19). Also according to the Ministry of Agriculture, the slaughterhouses closed by external agencies in April, 50% (3/6) returned to the activities of slaughtering birds, two of them located in Rio Grande do Sul and one in Paraná. In Rio Grande do Sul, the results of the first stage of the research on the presence of coronavirus in Lajeado estimate that the chances of contamination of a refrigerator employee in the city is three times higher, or about 207%, than other workers. Also according to the report, until May, 22 servers of the technical staff of the Federal Inspection Service (SIF) had a confirmed diagnosis for Covid-19, which represents 0.8% (22/2,719) of the servers that make up the SIF, which is considered essential activity. According to the government, of the 22 servers, 11 have already recovered and returned to work.
