Amazon briefed the staff on the situation with the injured employee and said: "The employee went home on Tuesday, February 25th, and he was not feeling well and had never entered an Amazon office." A note has been added: We have told the employee that we know we are in close contact with this employee. "

And Amazon added: "It is estimated that the risk of transmission of infection to employees who were not in close contact with this person is small." Amazon asked workers with symptoms to stay home and see a doctor.
