Nearly 20,000 Amazon Workers Positive for New Coronavirus
FRIDAY, Oct. 2, 2020 (HealthDay News) — Nearly 20,000 front-line Amazon workers in the United States have tested positive or been presumed positive for the new coronavirus, the company said Thursday.
The findings are from an analysis of data from March 1 to Sept. 19 on nearly 1.4 million workers at Amazon and Whole Foods Market nationwide, the Associated Press reported.
The information was released after months of pressure from Amazon workers and labor groups.
Amazon said the infection rate of its employees is well below that of the general U.S. population, the AP reported.
