Your Weekly COVID-19 Round-Up For 11 May.
Music by: Simon Sizer – Ares.
It’s CULTED with your weekly COVID-19 round-up.
First up, Lacoste has now produced 100,000 masks in the fight against the virus.
The brand is continuing coronavirus aid with the next milestone being to produce 200,000 masks.
Next, single-use plastic is on the rise as a result of the pandemic.
U.S. states are rolling back the ban on plastic bags and stores are banning the use of reusable shopping bags. Restaurants are also turning to single-use cutlery to reduce infection risk.
In other news, Banksy unveiled his latest artwork last week in homage to the NHS.
The art appeared at Southampton General Hospital and shows a boy who discarded his batman and spiderman dolls for a new hero – the NHS nurse.
Next, Bangladesh garment factories have reopened, despite the nationwide lockdown.
Workers have said that their lives are being put at risk as they are forced to work in cramped conditions without the provisions of masks or social distancing measures. The garment industry is the country’s biggest revenue with an estimated worth of $34bn and employs more than 4 million people.
