ZBC News yesterday ran the following story on Proton Bakeries. The publication said Proton is dismissing viral social media reports that the bread manufacturer is shielding COVID-19 positive cases and ordering them to continue working risking the lives of other employees.
Proton reportedly told the national broadcaster that only 30 out of 1000 employees tested positive for COVID-19 and they were in self-isolation.
This came after social media including EX Marondera MP Caston Matewu started urging people to boycott Proton Bakeries’ bread until they dealt with alleged the COVID-19 case at their bakery.
