According to Yonhap News Agency, Samsung Electronics said today that a worker at its Hwaseong semiconductor factory in South Korea has been confirmed as a COVID-19 case.

Samsung said it had disinfected the place where the infected employee had stayed. People who had been in contact with the employee were ordered to self-quarantine. At present, its chip production facilities are operating normally and production has not been affected.

The report pointed out that at the beginning of this month, Samsung established an internal virus testing center in the Hwaseong factory, so that Samsung can obtain the results of the employee coronavirus test in the shortest time.
