    In Malaysia, there’s been a serious outbreak of Covid-19 among workers at the world’s biggest manufacturer of medical gloves.   The company, Top Glove, which supplies the NHS, was the subject of an investigation by this programme in June. We revealed shocking evidence about working and living conditions which put the migrant workforce itself at risk of infection. Following our report, Top Glove was placed under US sanctions, but the company’s profits continued to surge as demand intensified.
