Amazon worker dies from coronavirus after showing ‘no symptoms’ at warehouse as employees plan strike – The Sun

AT least two Amazon employees have died from coronavirus after another worker in California died of the deadly bug this week, reports say. 

A company spokesperson confirmed the tragic news Thursday, telling NBC News the man had no COVID-19 symptoms before his death.

It is not clear when the Tracy worker contracted the disease but reports indicate his last day at the warehouse was April 1.

"We are saddened by the loss of an associate at our site in Tracy, California," a spokesperson told the station.

"His family and loved ones are in our thoughts, and we are supporting his fellow colleagues in the days ahead."

Amazon representatives told NBC that when they learned of his death they immediately reached out to his family and alerted the Tracy facility.

His death comes a month after the first worker succumbed to the killer disease in Southern California.

Amazon boss Gerard Tuzara worked at Amazon’s DLA8 facility in Hawthorne, California, and was the first worker to die from coronavirus last month.

His death comes after an increasing number of health and safety claims were made by employees regarding coronavirus who are set to protest tomorrow alongside frontline workers at Target, Walmart, Instacart, Whole Foods, and FedEx.
