KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 — The 14-day Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) imposed at Top Glove Corp Bhd’s foreign workers dormitories in Meru, Klang, effective today affects 5,700 workers and not 13,190 as reported, the company said.
In a statement today, the rubber glove manufacturer said the affected workers represent about 27 per cent of its total employees numbering 21,000.
“Our factories in Meru continue to operate with reduced capacity and workers not under the EMCO are working under strict standard operating procedures in line with the Ministry of Health guidelines.
“The majority of the affected workers are asymptomatic and do not have symptoms like fever or any sickness,” Top Glove noted.
Yesterday, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob was reported as saying 13,190 workers residing in the company’s dormitories in Klang, as well as 1,200 residents in the surrounding area would be placed under the EMCO until Nov 30.
