Margma relays concerns of glove buyers worldwide over production shutdown

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (​Margma) has again pleaded with the government to immediately allow the reinstatement of operations of all medical glove manufacturers in Selangor due to concerns expressed by healthcare sectors across the world.

Due to the implementation of the enhanced movement control order in Selangor, all medical glove manufacturers in the state were instructed to suspend production from last Saturday.

Margma assured the authorities that is members will adhere to all the workplace protocols prescribed by the Health Ministry.
