Key West, Florida (Reuters) – Massage therapists and other facialists will be recalled in the United States and around the world due to an “unusual” outbreak of coronavirus, a spokesman for the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday.
“We have received a number of reports of employees at these establishments being ill, and they are being tested for coronaviruses,” Mark Ritchie, a CDC spokesman, told reporters.
“We are working with health care providers, hospitals, and other relevant stakeholders to determine if additional employees should be recalled.”
Ritchie said he could not disclose the reason for the recall, but said it could be because the outbreak has affected “a very small number of workers”.
The agency said on Friday that 1,847 people had tested positive for coronavevirus, and it had received more than 7,600 reports of coronaveve infection, a higher number than the 1,400 to 1,500 cases it had previously reported.
In Florida, the agency said it has received more information than ever about the outbreak, but cautioned that the outbreak could continue to spread.
RICHMOND, Florida – Key West massage therapists and massage therapists will be recalling their products as part of an investigation into the potential risk of infection, the company said in a statement.
The National Center for Health Statistics in the US has said 1,764 people have tested positive in the region for coronae.
Health officials say they believe that about 600 people in the state have been infected with coronaviral disease.
It is not clear how the outbreak will affect business.
Last week, a New York state worker died of the virus, the first person to die from coronavirochirus.
The worker was working at a local salon in Key West.
The outbreak has prompted the closure of hundreds of businesses and forced the closure for the entire region, including Key West and the surrounding communities.
