COVID-19, Apple supplier workers in Vietnam sleep in factories

Bloomberg he claims that several Apple and Samsung suppliers in Vietnam are letting workers sleep in factories to minimize any disruption due to COVID-19 infections.

Local authorities say around 150,000 workers live in industrial parks to reduce the risk of infections in the northern provinces of Bac Ninh and Bac Giang in Vietnam, major manufacturing hubs that house Samsung Electronics Co. and Apple’s main suppliers. According to various media outlets, 22 companies with a workforce of 25,000 people have set up zones to do sleeping workers in factories.

The report states that thousands of people sleep on “metal bunk beds with bamboo mats and cribs in makeshift dorms and tents planted on concrete floors within cavernous corridors, and quarantined until negative after returning from home“.

In the meantime, Apple e Samsung they are trying to help their suppliers increase the number of vaccinations among workers, so as to avoid slowdowns in the production of new components. The situation in Vietnam it seemed almost resolved, but since the end of April the infections have increased and the government has had to close several industrial poles of companies such as Foxconn and Luxshare, both Apple suppliers.

Local authorities have worked with these companies to ensure that workers sleep in factories and dormitories, requiring them to undergo new tests weekly. The media reports that this solution has helped to significantly reduce the number of contacts within the factories.
