Samsung’s Heir Encourages Employees At Coronavirus Affected Plant To Overcome The Crisis

The world's largest smartphone maker had to shut down its Gumi smartphone production line for days recently after its workers tested positive for COVID-19

Samsung Electronics’ Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong on Tuesday visited one of the company’s plants here affected by the new coronavirus and encouraged employees there to overcome the crisis.

Lee, the heir apparent of Samsung Group, South Korea’s top conglomerate, inspected Samsung Electronics’ smartphone plant in the southeastern city of Gumi and spoke with production line workers there.

“I want to thank all people here who are doing their jobs on the front line despite a difficult situation,” Lee said. “The company will do its best to protect your health and safety.”

Samsung has so far reported four virus-infected workers at its production sites in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province, only about 50 kms north of Daegu, where more than 70 per cent of the country’s novel coronavirus infections have been reported.
