Coronavirus forces shutdown of Galaxy factory at South Korea

The coronavirus epidemic forced shutting down a smartphone plant in Gumi City, South Korea after an employee was confirmed to have the coronavirus infection.

Samsung’s Gumi plant is located some 200 kilometers from Seoul, South Korea. While many of Samsung’s phones are made in Vietnam, some of its most premium devices are still manufactured in South Korea. Both of its foldable phones, the Galaxy Fold and the newly launched Galaxy Z Flip, are manufactured at the Gumi plant.

The company has confirmed that its smart phone plant will remain closed shut down until Monday, February 24. It understandably wants to prevent the virus from infecting other workers. Officials confirmed that employees that came into contact with the infected employee have been quarantined.

The infected employee is said to be a member of the wireless division that’s in charge of smartphone. Employees at the plant were informed by the company’s Emergency Response Task Force by text message that the plant was being closed for the weekend as Samsung takes additional steps to sterilize the workplace.

Samsung advises workers to wear personal masks when they return to work on Monday as a precaution. The company has also recommended that employees refrain from domestic travel and use video conferencing to conduct business. Shuttle bus operations between its headquarters and the Gumi plant suspended.
