A new outbreak of Covid-19 contamination was discovered on Wednesday, June 17, in a slaughterhouse in Germany. In duplex on site, journalist François Beaudonnet talks about “a very virulent contamination in Gütersloh, a gigantic slaughterhouse in the northwest of the country, which alone produces 20% of the meat of all of Germany“. “It had to be closed urgently after 660 workers tested positive. The schools around the slaughterhouse were closed until September”, he adds.
“Beginning on Friday, the Bundeswehr, the German military, will be on site to conduct thousands of tests. Thursday evening, there are several outbreaks of epidemic foci in Germany. Since Wednesday in Berlin, several hundred people from a very popular neighborhood have been quarantined. This is also the case in Göttingen, a town in Lower Saxony, where a whole building bar has been quarantined. Of course, in Germany there is concern, even if no one really fears a second wave, because each epidemic focus is immediately circumscribed “, he concludes.
