Corona alarm at Uppsala company - infectious risk closes Thermo Fisher

UPDATED TODAY 14: 52PUBLISHED TODAY 10:11

Employees at the Thermo Fisher Scientific company in Uppsala have been asked not to go to work today. The reason is the risk of Corona infection, the company writes in an internal email to its employees.

A person working at the American company’s Uppsala facility may have been exposed to infection through interaction with an infected person. The visit took place during a trip to Germany.

The approximately 700 employees must have been invited to work from home during Thursday in a message sent to them during the night. The facility in Uppsala manufactures allergy test equipment and is located in the Fyrislund industrial area.

Your kidding… This is just great. :unamused:

First case in New Zealand confirmed today. Traveller arrived from Iran. Now stable in Auckland hospital. Foolish authorities seem to think it can be isolated and contained. Glad I wasn’t in that plane flying in.
