Samsung says chip factory worker tests positive for virus, output not affected

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said on Tuesday that one of the employees of the chip factory in South Korea tested positive for coronavirus, but the output was not affected. This is the first time an employee of a Samsung chip factory has tested a positive virus, although several confirmed cases at the technology giant’s smartphone factory in the southeastern city of Gumi in South Korea have led to a temporary suspension.

Chip factories were largely unaffected by the pandemic that started in China, although concerns about supply disruptions have contributed to recent price hikes. “One of our employees at our foundry factory in Giheung, Korea, tested positive with COVID-19,” Samsung said in a statement referring to the respiratory disease caused by the virus.

“Those who were in close contact with the worker are currently in self-isolation and the work area of ​​the worker is closed to disinfection,” said Samsung, adding that cleanrooms remained in operation. South Korea, which once committed the largest outbreak outside of China, has seen a drop in the number of cases in recent weeks. The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 78 new cases on Monday, at least 13 of which were from abroad.
