Samsung has decided to close the quarantine factory in South Korea, where Galaxy Z Flip smartphones are being launched. The reason was the infection of one of the employees of the enterprise. The downtime will probably not be long, as it plans to resume the factory on Monday.
The impact on the production of smartphones in the clamshell form factor will most likely be minimal, writes CNET. Samsung noted that the health of employees and their well-being is a priority for the company. To ensure safety, disinfection procedures will be carried out.
Samsung was not the first company to deal with the difficulties associated with the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. In addition, several major events were canceled, including MWC 2020. The economic damage from the Chinese virus remains to be calculated.
