More than 8,000 workers from a factory in Batu Berendam here will undergo Covid-19 screening after some of them tested positive, said state Health and Anti-Drug Committee chairman Datuk Rahmad Mariman.
He said the factory, which will bear the cost of the screening, initiated the move following a rise in Covid-19 positive cases among its employees, triggering a new cluster called the Berendam Cluster.
