Twelve employees at the R&D-focused R5 building in Suwon, just south of Seoul, have tested positive for the coronavirus, and those who have been in contact with them are awaiting the results of their tests, a person familiar with the matter told the Yonhap news agency by phone.
There could be more confirmed cases of coronavirus on the road, according to the source.
The chip giant made employees who may have been in contact with their infected colleagues on the same floor of the R5 building for two weeks to work from home, she said. (Yonhap)
