ANOTHER AMAZON DEATH
Amazon announced Thursday that another one of its warehouse workers died from complications associated with the coronavirus.
The recent death marks eight employees the tech giant has lost because of the disease.
The worker was a woman who had been with the company since November 2018. She was staffed at Amazon’s fulfillment center just outside of Cleveland, according to NBC News.
“We are saddened by the loss of an associate who had worked at our site in Randall, Ohio,” Amazon spokeswoman Lisa Levandowski told the network. “Her family and loved ones are in our thoughts, and we are supporting her fellow colleagues.”
Levandowski said the employee’s last day of work at the center was April 30 — she was diagnosed with the virus on the same day. Her sister-in-law told the company that she had died Monday.
