Mass Faintings Continue at Two Factories

Workers at two different factories in Phnom Penh suffered mass fainting spells yesterday according to the Ministry of Labor and the factory officials. A Puma owned shoe factory 49 workers fainted and at the Hung Way garment factory another 64 workers fainted. The Puma factory will be closed until Thursday in order to put in a new storage system for chemicals that some believe to be the cause of the fainting spells.
