Amazon Confirms Two Italian workers affected by Coronavirus

Amazon has advised workers to avoid non-essential travel

Amazon said late Sunday that two workers in Milan, Italy, are under quarantine and are affected by the Coronavirus. “We’re supporting the affected employees who were in Milan and are now in quarantine,” Amazon spokesman Dan Perlet said.

The world’s largest online retailer said it didn’t know about any US workers who are affected by the Coronavirus. Amazon advised employees on Friday to avoid non-essential travel within and beyond the United States. The company also stated Sunday that some recruitment interviews are being moved to video rather than in person.

The US hiked its travel advisory on Saturday and urged US citizens not to fly to Italy’s Veneto and Lombardy regions due to coronavirus outbreak. Milan is the capital of the Lombardy region.

The New York Times also reported earlier Sunday that the Amazon workers are affected with Coronavirus.

Separately, after a worker tested positive for the Coronavirus, Samsung Electronics shut down one of its mobile device factories in South Korea, the Yonhap news agency reported, claiming a company official.

The factory in Gumi, near Daegu where most of the South Korean coronavirus cases have been confirmed, was temporarily closed last month after finding an earlier case.
