As Brandix continues to come under harsh criticism for having COVID-19 positive cases among its staffers, leading to a spike in the number of infected persons in the country, the Fabric and Apparel Accessory Manufactures’ Association (FAAMA) urges the public to be “respectful” during the ongoing crisis.
Calling it an “entirely unfortunate incident”, FAAMA stressed that no company or industry would intentionally put their workforce or the members of the general public at risk.
“FAAMA urges the public to be empathetic and respectful towards all families affected by this situation.
”We urge the general public to work together with the relevant authorities as well as to be responsible in dealing with social media to protect the image of our industry and country during these trying times,” said the association while acknowledging the position of Brandix as a significant contributor to the Sri Lankan apparel and textile industry.
FAAMA stressed the need for all sections of the community to stand together as one nation and pull through the ongoing pandemic with dignity and respect for one another.
