Samsung has temporarily closed one of the factories that makes the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip after one of its employees was confirmed to have the coronavirus.

The factory, which is in Gumi City, South Korea, will reopen the morning on Feb. 25 at the earliest. According to SamMobile, other employees who came into contact with the infected employee are now under quarantine.

Per CNN, there were over 430 coronavirus patients in South Korea at the time of writing. Over 220 new cases were reported in 24 hours, doubling the country’s total.

 

Samsung shuts down Galaxy Z Flip factory following coronavirus case

 

The Galaxy Z Flip sold out quickly after its initial release online and has since been difficult for consumers to find. On Thursday, Samsung claimed the phone was still available at “select retailers and carrier stores around the country.” It also restocked its own online store. However, many would-be buyers have still had a hard time getting their hands on the phone.

However, the factory in Gumi City only makes up a small portion of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip production. Most of its smartphones are produced in Vietnam and India, according to Reuters.
