Two employees at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in the United States, whose coronavirus tests were positive, died of the disease. This was reported by Automotive News Europe with reference to a statement by a representative of the United Auto Workers’ Union (UAW).

These are the first confirmed victims of COVID-19 from among auto workers in the States. For reasons of confidentiality, their names are not disclosed: it is only known that we are talking about people from two different factories – in Michigan and Indiana.

All North American FCA enterprises were stopped last week – after the European ones. The downtime will last at least until the end of March. According to the Johns Hopkins University counter, 55 243 cases of infection with a new coronavirus and 802 deaths from it are currently registered in the USA. Only things worse in China and Italy.
