Mowi's huge salmon processing plant in Duninow, Poland, has confirmed cases of COVID-19 among employees, Mowi Poland's Communications Director Emilia Schomburg told IntraFish. "We have confirmed cases at our facility in Duninow in Poland. The source of infection was outside the company."

About 4,500 people work at Mowi's processing plant near Ustka.

"From the day we diagnosed the first person, which was July 17 this year, we have conducted 749 tests, 29 were positive, which can certainly be considered a small percentage as we employ over 4,000 people," said Schomburg, adding that "such a small percentage of cases" proves that the restrictive internal procedures that were introduced as early as the end of February this year to protect employees and the company against the spread of the coronavirus seem to be successful.
