The worker, who does not want to be named, expressed his concerns as the government continue to stress the importance of social distancing and keeping away from other people to limit the spread of COVID-19.
More than 4,000 workers are currently working on-site daily to build Britain’s first nuclear power plant in decades and are in close proximity with each other.
