LG Display suspends work at South Korea factory over virus infection

SEOUL (Reuters) - LG Display has suspended work at its display module factory in the South Korean city of Gumi after a coronavirus case was confirmed, the company said.

An employee of a bank, located next to the plant that turns out smartphone flat screens, tested positive for the virus, leading to the shutdown, a company spokeswoman said, adding that the line would restart on Tuesday.
