The coronavirus outbreak is forcing many South Korean companies to temporarily close their factories overseas.
Hyundai Motor had already suspended operations at most of its plants in Europe and the U.S. this month, and now it's doing the same in Russia and Turkey.
Samsung Electronics said today that it's closing another plant in Brazil for two weeks starting Monday.
It had closed one in northern Brazil earlier this week.
Meanwhile, LG Electronics announced today that it will temporarily shut down its washing machine plant in the U.S. state of Tennessee from Monday to April 12th.
That plant, with some 6-hundred workers, makes about 100-thousand washing machines a month.
