British online supermarket Ocado, which has been working hard in recent weeks to provide hoarding British people with food, has bought 100,000 corona tests for its own staff. With this, the company hopes to use as many employees as possible in its warehouses and the delivery of groceries. That reported the British newspaper The Telegraph on the basis of insiders.
Ocado wants his staff, who are still isolated at home, as a precaution, tested for the new corona virus. Employees who are found not to be infected can then return to work. The purchase of the tests cost Ocado around 1.5 million pounds, or 1.7 million euros.
The online supermarket has recently seen an explosive rise in the number of orders. The order volume is now ten times higher than before the corona crisis.
