The plant will resume production on Saturday, she said.
So far, six people who work at the factory complex in Gumi, which makes Samsung’s premium G20 smartphones and Z Flip foldable phones, have contracted the disease, leading to temporary shutdowns.
It temporarily closed the factory last month due to the virus.
