Hyundai has shut down a plant in South Korea after a coronavirus worker has found positive.

The closed factory is in Ulsan, which manufactures the Korean car maker’s numerous SUVs. Including the Santa Fe, Palisade, Tucson, and the recently revealed Genesis GV80.

The carmaker has also put in self-quarantine workers who came into contact with the contaminated staff and took action to get them to check for the virus, says Reuters.

Complexity:

Hyundai did not say when the plant would re-open, saying only that the facility disinfected. The Korean car manufacturer has five Ulsan factories with an annual production capacity of 1.4 million cars. So, about 30% of their global production. Ulsan is the biggest car complex in the country, with 34,000 workers employed by Hyundai there.

Also, Ulsan is less than an hour away from Daegu, the epicenter of the outbreak in the region. South Korea actually has the most cases of coronavirus outside of China. With the most recent total number of infected people remaining at 2,022.

Samsung also had to shut down one of the country’s telecommunications factories over the past weekend. Following the discovery of a worker who was infected with the virus. But they resumed production Monday.
