Petrobras said in a statement, last Tuesday (12), that landed all employees of the pxa-1 and pxa-2 platforms, located in the xaréu field, in Ceará, after the confirmation of suspected cases of covid-19.
According to the state, all workers of the platforms have been submitted to tests, placed in isolation and are being monitored by health professionals. Family members of the employees will also be tested.
According to the oil company, even before the suspected cases, the staff had already been halved, to carry out only maintenance and preservation work. Now the platforms are paralyzed production.
Employees of PAT-3, another platform located in the Xaréu field, were also submitted to tests to detect the new coronavirus as a preventive measure.
