The world’s popular online Market Amazon has recorded another Covid-19 related death on Friday
A warehouse worker in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Friday was announced dead after testing positive to COVID-19, the company confirmed.
The current death brings the total tally of COVID-19 deaths at the company’s warehouses to seven.
It has been reported that the following deaths has been due to Amazon’s process for notifying workers making it difficult to determine. Several workers at IND8 first came to know about the deaths through rumors and say management began informing employees more widely only after being confronted.
“They weren’t going to say anything if it wasn’t for people asking questions,” says a worker at IND8, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of expultion.
Amazon has repeatedly declined to say how many warehouse employees have been diagnosed with or died from the virus. In a “60 Minutes” interview which was aired on Sunday, Amazon senior vice president of worldwide operations Dave Clark called statistics on infections “not a particularly useful number.” On Tuesday, 13 state attorneys general wrote to Amazon requesting data on the number of workers who had contracted or died of COVID-19.
“The company was informed about the death of the Indiana employee on April 30th and they swiftly notified all their employees within the building” said an Amazon Spokesperson
“We are saddened by the loss of an associate at our site in Indianapolis, IN,” the company said in a statement. “His family and loved ones are in our thoughts, and we are supporting his fellow colleagues in the days ahead.” he went further to reveal
Lately the company have started sending text alerts or automated calls when a worker is diagnosed, but the alerts often refer only to “multiple new cases,” so workers have been left to tally alerts themselves to figure out the prevalence of the coronavirus at their facility. At IND8, workers believe the number is around a dozen. Jana Jumpp, an Amazon warehouse worker in Indiana, has been collecting alerts sent to workers around the country and says at least 800 Amazon warehouse workers have been diagnosed with the virus.
