Slaughterhouses and COVID-19
By Vegan Society Of Canada

Vegan Society of Canada News September 11th 2020

As we have written about in the past, conditions for those working in abattoirs are horrendous.

It was inconceivable to think this situation could become worse, however, that’s indeed what has happened with COVID-19, and the scientific community is in consensus that what was an appalling situation is now so much worse. Slaughterhouse workers are being exploited at unprecedented levels due to this pandemic.

Early in the spread of COVID-19, it was clear in many places throughout the world that slaughterhouses were a magnet for the spread of the virus. In May 2020, Bloomberg published an article showing that many of the communities that have a slaughterhouse in the vicinity were experiencing the spread of COVID-19 at twice the national average.

As time passed, it became evident that this was not limited to the U.S.A. As was reported, communities close to slaughterhouses across Canada were also experiencing much higher rates of COVID-19, as was GermanyFranceNetherlandsEnglandSpainIreland, Belgium, Poland, and pretty much everywhere else in the world where slaughterhouses exist.

Clearly the animal agriculture industry is not interested in publicizing these statistics.

Publisher’s Note: The Human Rights Watch follow-up report on the exploitation of human animals in slaughterhouses is out. Read the Vegan Society of Canada article, Torment and Butchery or Torment in Butchery, for more information.
