BRASILIA (Reuters) - Seven platforms operated by Brazilian oil company Petrobras in the Campos basin have confirmed cases of the coronavirus among its staff, the FUP oil workers union said on Wednesday.

The FUP will ask oil industry regulator ANP and health authorities to halt work on the platforms with the most cases, adding that the Campos platforms with infected personnel are P-26, P-50, P-18, P-35, P-20, P-33 and P-62.
