Tech Giant Samsung Temporarily Shuts Smartphone Plant in Gumi Due To Coronavirus Case

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.
