Galaxy Z Flip factory closes because of coronavirus infection

The spread of coronavirus is hurting the global technology industry, with companies shutting down stores and offices, trying to limit travel, and bracing to an optimized global supply chain for disruptions. The illness is beginning to affect the latest Samsung smartphone.

Just weeks after the Galaxy Z Flip was released, the Korean tech giant shuttered a factory in South Korea over the weekend, making the clamshell-like device. The plants in Gumi City, South Korea, was closed after a wireless division employee who is responsible for producing smartphones tested positive for the pneumonia-like disease.

Samsung said on Saturday; an employee had been testing positive for coronavirus. The plant will reopen Tuesday, and the impact of the closure is supposed to be slight.

“The health and safety of our employees are our highest priority,” said Samsung. “The company plans to implement all necessary measures for disinfection and containment promptly.”

The fictional coronavirus, now called SARS-CoV-2, emerged in Wuhan, China, and has killed over 2,000 people and infected more than 75,000 so far. Many Cases have already been confirmed in the US, Europe, Australia, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.

Coronavirus Fears prompted Facebook to call off a San Francisco March Marketing Summit expected to attract 4,000 people. The Mobile industry Conference scheduled for earlier in February in Barcelona has have been canceled.

Samsung is not the only smartphone manufacturer that could be affected by the disease. Apple also said earlier this month that it is likely to miss last month’s quarterly revenue guidance, citing two reasons for the update: the coronavirus hurts both Chinese customer demand and Chinese production capabilities.
