COVID-19 OUTBREAK CONFIRMED AT INTEL

by Gazette Reporter

Up to 70 new cases  of Covid-19  has been confirmed  at Intel in Leixip, Co Kildare.

The group outbreak occurred at the company’s construction site for its new manufacturing plant.

A spokesman confirmed the number as “approximately 70” and described the situation as “fluid” but it is understood that further testing has resulted in more positive cases being found.

The company and the main contractor are now engaged with public health authorities while all employees on the site have been notified of the situation.

A spokesman for the builders’ umbrella body, the  Construction Industry Federation, stressed that it did  not expect this outbreak on a building site  at  Intel  to affect the expected reopening of all construction sites on May 4.

The Federation’s DG, Tom Parlon, said this discovery was  a “blip”.
