Samsung Electronics said on Saturday that it has temporarily shut down a smartphone plant in the South Korean city of Gumi, shortly after a plant employee tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Samsung plans to complete disinfection work at the plant in Gumi, 260 kms southeast of Seoul, by Sunday and resume operations at the plant on Monday, Yonhap news agency reported.
Employees who made contact with the virus patient have quarantined themselves as a precautionary measure to stem the spread of the coronavirus, Samsung said.
A company official said the temporary shutdown is unlikely to affect the production of smartphones.
The Gumi plant produces Samsung’s flagship smartphones, including the Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphone.

Talking about her popstar husband and rumours around their marriage, Hailey said: "I think one of the biggest things is you have to know what the truth is behind everything. You know, there's so many narratives that float around about me, about him, about us together." She addressed the rumours point blank as she said: "There's one big fat narrative that goes around that's like, 'Justin is not nice to her, and that he mistreats her', and I'm just like, it's so far from the truth, and it's the complete and utter opposite."
Hailey went on to set the record straight about Justin, who she married in 2018. She said: "I really am lucky to say I'm with someone who is extremely respectful of me, who makes me feel special every single day. So when I see the opposite of that, I'm just like, 'Huh?' And everybody around who knows us personally would say the same thing." (IANS/ MBI)

"On the contrary, with listed companies' financial positions improving and an uptick in household investments in the Real Estate sector (called physical savings), the narrative of investment-led recovery is gaining momentum." The report prescribed that various economic participants - households, governments, listed companies, and unlisted corporates -- to increase their fixed asset investments in the immediate future based on their financial position.
"Despite household investments picking up strongly in 2HFY21, given that Indian households bore the maximum brunt of Covid-led losses in CY20 (and CY21), we believe household spending would remain subdued over the next few years." It further pointed out that unless 'HH', 'Unlisted Corporate', and government sectors can improve their financial positions -- leading to a demand uptick -- a strong revival in investments seems challenging.
