On March 1 Washington reporter- Amazon.com Inc said late on Sunday that two employees in Milan, Italy, have contracted the coronavirus and are separated.
The company spokesman Dan Perlet added, “We’re supporting the affected employees who were in Milan and are now in detention”.
It was reported by the world’s biggest online trader that there are no U.S. employees whom the virus has attacked. Amazon told employees to stop unnecessary travel, within the United States and out of it. The recruiting interviews are being moved to video rather than in person by the company.
The U.S government urged citizens not to travel to the Veneto and Lombardy regions of Italy because of the corona virus eruption. Milan is the capital of the Lombardy region.
