Amazon has been making moves in the current pandemic, as many have been flocking to the service to order products needed for their home to avoid going outside. However, video footage that surfaced shows people may still be at risk for contracting coronavirus, as an Amazon delivery driver was seen smearing their saliva on to a customer’s package.
The incident reportedly took place in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles, and shows a delivery man putting his saliva on to a package, then taking a photo of a package as if nothing happened. The situation was captured by a Ring security system, and a neighbor of the resident contacted Amazon about the incident.
Amazons Statement: “This is clearly not representative of drivers who deliver for Amazon and the care they take for customers around the world every day,” an Amazon spokesperson told Business Insider in a statement. “We are aggressively investigating to understand what may have occurred in this situation. If it truly was a malicious act by the driver, we will be sure he is held accountable, up through and including law enforcement action.”
