 Amazons new crown tested nearly 20000 people positive and was accused of lack of transparency


In Europe, Amazons business units have also experienced the impact of local outbreaks. Amazon said on Thursday that the infection rate of new coronavirus among employees in most states of the United States is relatively low.

But Minnesota is an exception. According to the report of June, the Amazon warehouse near the city of Minneapolis has seen a collective infection of employees, and the infection rate of new coronavirus exceeds the overall infection rate of local communities. As of Wednesday local time, 7.26 million new coronavirus infections have been reported in the United States, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University and Bloomberg.

This opacity has angered employees, some of whom feel they dont know the severity of the companys epidemic, and some members of the US Council are also looking for hot spots in the companys epidemic. Maura Healey, the Attorney General of Massachusetts, led a coalition of her peers in May, asking Amazon to release infection data on employees and employees of its subsidiary whole foods.

In response, Amazon said in a blog post that it was strengthening its internal new coronavirus testing program launched earlier this year and hopes to conduct 50000 tests a day by next month. The company encourages other companies to disclose the new coronavirus infection rate of their employees. Extensive data disclosure will allow us to measure progress and allow best practices to be shared between businesses and industries. Unfortunately, there is very little comparable information from other companies about infection rates and detection rates, Amazon said in its blog post Amazons latest number of employees disclosed in the blog is much higher than the companys previously announced total number of employees, indicating that the companys business is growing rapidly. The company had previously announced that its global workforce was 876800 as of the end of June this year.
