Seventh Amazon Employee Dies of COVID-19

I know The Verge loves sensational headlines but the truth of the matter is that Amazon has 560,000 employees. They are all front line workers and, not to downplay the tragedy of those deaths, but it is still 7 out of 560,000.

The death brings the known total of COVID-19 deaths at Amazon warehouses to seven, but Amazon’s process for notifying workers makes the true number difficult to determine.
