Repercussion of opening of lockdown-— Rita ???? (@RitaG74) May 26, 2020
Nokia and Oppo plants see outbreak of Corona.
Plants shut again.
Those planning to open offices or joining their offices, be very very careful. It is dangerous now.
Nokia did not reveal how many positively tested workers at the Sriperumbudur plant in Tamil Nadu but a source familiar with the matter said they were at least 42.
The company said that it had already implemented measures such as social distancing and canteen facilities changes.
Over the past couple of weeks, the factory had started operations in a restricted manner, Nokia said in a statement, after India eased the world's largest lockdown to kick-start its shutdown-pummeling economy.
"We hope to resume operations at a limited level with strength of the skeletal personnel soon," Nokia added.
Last week, Chinese smartphone maker OPPO suspended operations at a recently reopened New Delhi outskirts plant after at least nine workers tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The Nokia and OPPO outbreaks underscore the challenges of easing the nationwide two-month lockdown.
India recorded a total of 145,380 coronavirus infections on Tuesday, and a death toll of 4,167, which is comparatively low for the second-most populous country in the world.
