It announced that Samsung will close the Gumi Factory in South Korea again. The factory, which was closed for 2 days before, was disinfected in this process.
Samsung announced that a week ago, Gumi temporarily closed its smartphone manufacturing factory in South Korea due to a verified case of corona virus infection. The factory was closed for 2 days and the company carried out disinfection of the entire factory during this time.
Samsung has announced that it will close its factory for 2 days again after another corona virus case is confirmed today. Production will be suspended at the Gumi factory for two days from March 1 to March 3.
Samsung has a total of 3 corona virus cases
South Korea was hit hard by the corona virus. The highest number of cases outside of China is in South Korea, so we can call South Korea one of the epicenters of the disease. The country’s largest companies stand behind the Korean government to control the virus. Samsung announced it will donate $ 24.6 million to support the government.
Samsung has confirmed the latest corona virus case today. Someone working in the wireless business at the Gumi Factory, where premium devices such as Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Fold are made, were infected by the corona virus. The section where this employee is located has been temporarily closed and will be fully functional next week. While the floor on which it works is closed until March 3, it will continue production after that date.
A case was also seen at Samsung’s semiconductor factory. But this time he was seen not in a factory worker, but in a cafe worker. Samsung closed the cafe temporarily. If necessary, it can prolong downtime.
Samsung has to cope with the drop caused by the corona virus. However, despite the fact that Samsung has temporarily closed the Gumi Factory, Galaxy Z Flip argues that it will not have a problem with the supply.
