Karur’s textile manufacturing units shutdown for 5 days

Karur (Tamil Nadu)

With a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases, textile manufacturers and exporters association in Karur (Tamil Nadu) has announced a complete shutdown of the manufacturing units starting today. During the previous complete lockdown situation in the state, the export textile units were operating with 50% staff, but now owing to a rapid increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, members of the Karur handloom export cloth manufacturers association have deliberately stopped their operations from May 19.

According to M Nachimuthu, President, Karur Textile Manufacturer Exporters Association, they have been taking all the precautions and following SOPs to complete the pending orders but as the infection is spreading at a fast pace, they have decided to shut the units voluntarily for five days.

According to V Senthil Balaji, Minister for Electricity, considering the increasing need for oxygen beds for the COVID-19 patients, around 15 new beds will be set up by the Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Limited within this week.
