A new safety protocol has been agreed to try to stop the growing number of Covid-19 cases in meat processing plants.

Siptu and Meat Industry Ireland have both signed up to the national charter this afternoon.

It will include maintaining serial testing of staff, ongoing screening, temperature testing and strict hygiene controls.

More than 1,500 staff in these factories have tested positive for Covid-19, according to Siptu.
