MÉRIDA, Yucatan, (January 10, 2021).- Companies begin to report more Covid infections among workers in Yucatán and that is why they again plan to implement a program of “days-off” during the week to avoid crowds at workplaces.

The foregoing was announced by the secretary-general of the Revolutionary Confederation of Workers and Farmers (CROC), Pedro Oxté Conrado. 

The union leader pointed out that the new strain is causing “real problems”, unlike others, because it is proving that it is much more contagious since only in this first week of the year it has had knowledge of at least 80 positive cases among workers who belong to the union. 

“The new strain has been very problematic in the workplace, now the workers begin to feel the discomfort more easily and when they are tested, they already have the virus, more than the first one that locked us up, we see that it is also more aggressive,” he said.

He assured that the infections are occurring, “so they cannot hide the figures.”

Although he cannot say the name of the companies, around 80 infected people have been counted, “there is one in one, two in another, then they report four in one more, six in another, and in this way the cases increase daily.”

More reports of infections 

This time there has been a greater number of reports compared to last year when one or two were reported every certain time. 

That is why the companies, together with the union representatives, are reinforcing hygiene measures so that massive contagion does not occur.

“Companies are once again scheduling breaks between workers so that there is no overcrowding of staff every day. The situation that worries us because we are barely reactivated economically; there is fear of a drop in production, hence the importance of care and prevention for society in general ”, he added. 

In order to avoid confinement, he indicated that everyone must comply with hygiene regulations and reduce mobility, as well as the indications suggested by the Ministry of Health to avoid contagion.
