The spread of the corona virus affects the global technology industry. One of the companies affected by the corona virus is Samsung. The company reportedly closed the Galaxy Z Flip cellphone factory because of the virus outbreak.

A few weeks after launching Galaxy Z Flip, the South Korean electronics giant closed the factory over the weekend. The factory produces the latest smartphones in the clamshell style.

The reason Samsung closed its factory (temporarily) an employee tested positive for the corona virus on Saturday. The plant is expected to reopen on Monday, and the closing effect is expected to be minimal.

The factory in the city of Gumi, South Korea, was closed after a wireless division employee in charge of producing smart phones tested positive for diseases such as pneumonia.

Now there is a new corona virus, now called SARS-CoV-2 originating from Wuhan, China. So far, the virus is said to have killed more than 2,000 people and infected more than 75,000.

Cases have been confirmed in the US, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Australia.

Not only did Samsung shut down the factory temporarily because of the corona virus, but Facebook also canceled its marketing meeting in March in San Francisco which is expected to attract 4,000 people. In Barcelona, the Mobile World Conference which was scheduled for early February was also canceled, what a pity.

Samsung is not the only cellphone manufacturer that might be affected by this disease. Apple said earlier this month that it was likely to lose quarterly earnings guidance given last month, citing two reasons for the update: The corona virus damages demand from Chinese customers and production capabilities within China.


SAMSUNG SAID
"The health and safety of our employees is our top priority,"

The effects of this epidemic on the economy are just beginning, I am concerned how strong they will be and for how long these preventive measures to suspend activities in different companies or meetings or events will have to be taken.

The world is canceling business. The world really needs to shut down air travel except for emergency or military. We all should be going on lock down and limiting personal contact.

This flu season is going to be bad. Hang on and prayers for all...
