LONDON (Reuters) - Commodity pricing agency S&P Global Platts told employees at its Canary Wharf office in London to work from home until further notice after a visitor was diagnosed with the coronavirus, the company said.
“Platts has a robust business continuity plan to ensure there are no disruptions to our MOC (market-on-close) price assessment process and the essential commodity market intelligence our customers rely on across news and analytics,” a company statement said.
Platts said about 1,200 employees work in that office.
Britain has so far registered 115 cases and reported its first death from the coronavirus on Thursday.
