FRANKFURT -- German supplier Webasto said on Friday that two more of its employees have tested positive for the coronavirus, bringing the total to seven.
Earlier this week, the company began disclosing the illnesses of the other workers, in what was one of the first cases of person-to-person transmission outside China.
One of the newly-diagnosed employees is German and in Germany, while the other is Chinese and in Shanghai. Both are being treated in a hospital, Webasto said.
The newly identified sick employees had been in close contact with the other employees found to have contracted the illness.
All seven, five Germans and two Chinese, had taken part in various long meetings at Webasto headquarters in Stockdorf, Bavaria, the company said.
