TAIPEI -- Compal Electronics, a supplier to Dell and Amazon, is halting production at its factory in northern Taiwan for a week after several employees tested positive for COVID-19 as the latest wave of the omicron variant spreads in Taiwan.

The world's No. 2 contract notebook manufacturer said it will suspend manufacturing activities at its plant in Pingzhen in Taoyuan City -- one of Taiwan's key industrial hubs -- after three employees tested positive, according to a stock exchange filing on Monday night.
