LONDON (Reuters) - London employees at Unipec, the trading arm of China’s state oil firm Sinopec, have been told to work from home after an employee exhibited coronavirus-like symptoms, a source familiar with the matter said.
Employees were “asked to stay home until more is known as a precaution”, the source said.
“Unipec UK will continue to monitor the situation of this suspected case of COVID-19 very closely, abiding to the guidance of international and local health authorities,” the company said in a statement.
“Our primary concern is the health and safety of our employees,” it added.
