South Korean giants Samsung and LG closed some plant units temporarily due to COVID-19

Samsung Electronics and LG Innotek have temporarily shut their factories in South Korea after a worker on both companies have tested positive for the coronavirus according to the companies.

Samsung closed the assembly line at a handset factory where it said four employees had been diagnosed while LG with one employee tested positive for the virus.

Samsung said it would implement "all necessary measures" to prevent the spread of the virus.

The Gumi line, which was closed temporarily last month after an earlier case was discovered, makes Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy S20 premium phones, though its production accounts for a small portion of the company's entire smartphone output.

Meanwhile, LG Innotek which is a supplier of camera modules for Apple, suspended operations at one of its sites due to the virus.

Closed unit lines are expected to restart operations this week.
