A number of tech companies have pulled out their presence due to the coronavirus outbreak at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 that is set to take place in Barcelona later this month.
Ahead of MWC 2020, Samsung is proceeding with additional precautions amid the recent Coronavirus outbreak in the launching event of Galaxy Z Flip smartphone along with its Galaxy S20 lineup.
Samsung is making hand sanitisers and faces masks widely available at the event venue, according to a report.
The company has installed thermal imaging cameras at all the venue entrances to measure the body temperature of the attendees.
Additionally, the company has also deployed medical supervisors at the event venue whom the attendees can consult if they display "unusual or extreme respiratory symptoms".
Lastly, the company is reminding all the attendees of the US government's travel restrictions, which bans people who have travelled to China in the past two weeks from entering the country. "Please note that the CDC recommends those who show symptoms of the Coronavirus to avoid contact with others and not travel while sick," Samsung said according to the report.
Separately, the company is also mulling to pull out of the upcoming Mobile World Congress that has witnessed names like Amazon, LG, ZTE and Nvidia pulling out owing to the recent Coronavirus outbreak. According to a CNET report, Samsung is on the verge of pulling out of the event. However, it hasn't confirmed its plans yet.
