Are USDA / FSIS govt folks also dying from inspecting at the big mega plants too....
It seems the plant operations, capacities and inspection methods may get changed a bunch.

The govt will force changes since the big corps seem to have a hard time making things safer.

If they’re dying from inspections then they really need to review their own protocols....

You got a reliable source for that?  I’m skeptical.  I live in a region with quite a number of packing plants that have been hit with C19 and I am hearing of precious few deaths of line workers (which is good!!), so I find this idea that inspectors are dying a bit far out.

2 FSIS deaths Chicago area, and 1 farther E or NE.. That 1 is either USDA or FSIS too.
Sourced from Google News.

As far as plant worked corona death.. Has been a few , several locations.
Think 4 so far at Greeley JBS for example.

I guess from a supposed blameless society, You can blame corona on anything.

Down here a common thread of corona incidence is being Navajo. Say 350,000 Indians 100,000 square miles.

Obviously another high incidence corona group is packing plant workers and meat inspecters.

Navajo people lack social distance sence .

Packing plant workers lack space to social distance.
