Sorry for the confusing title, but OMG, had an absolutely horrible conference call meeting for work this afternoon. Because of the pandemic, we all called in from home. After our manager mentioned corporate safety protocols and financial support if staff should miss work even if showing signs of symptoms, during the round table at the tail end of the conference call, one of our female engineers began sobbing. As the title says, her BF began showing early signs of cv19 with a dry cough after coming home from work. He's a laborer, ironically, for a company packing CV19 related kits. The employer dismissed the symptoms of dry cough of workers citing paranoia and even accusations of faking them to get off from work. Not sure if anyone had fevers or even the next stages. Our manager took the conversation offline. Our team have our fingers crossed hoping for the best.
