On the night of May 10th, "60 minutes" tweeted about Amazon's newest invention- mobile ultraviolet sanitation. Although only a prototype, the video showed a robot roaming in a grocery store disinfecting surfaces as part of a move by the giant tech company to curb the spread of COVID-19. But the news didn't go down well with all of Amazon's staff. Some want the firm to shut down distribution outlets for disinfectants and cleaning when staff test positive.
However, Amazon is yet to disclose the number of workers who have tested positive for the contagion. Multiple reports estimate the figure to be 600 or more. Meanwhile, in a recent Amazon's earnings report, CEO Jeff Bezos said that the company aims to spend $4 Billion on its coronavirus response this quarter. He reiterated his commitment to helping Amazon's fraternity to survive the pandemic unscathed
