Samsung Electronics temporarily shuts down factory in Gumy following confirmed case of coronavirus

In a news bulletin, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported, citing an official from Samsung Electronics, that the electronic giant has shut down one of its mobile device factories in the country following one of its worker testing positive for China’s coronavirus.

Samsung’s factory in Gumi, close to Daegu where most of the South Korean coronavirus cases have been confirmed, has been temporarily shutdown in February after an earlier case was discovered.

The floor where the infected employee worked is slated to reopen on Tuesday afternoon, reported Yonhap.

Samsung did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
