Kia Motors announced on Monday that it will close the medical insurance and insurance bureau on January 7, due to the Ebola virus threat.
Kia Motors’ parent company, General Motors, also announced on Thursday that it would be closing the medical health insurance bureau starting January 7.
General Motors announced the news on Thursday morning, saying the move is to address the current threat.
“We want to reassure our customers and stakeholders that we are fully prepared to meet their needs and that we will provide the best care and services to all of our customers, employees and associates,” said John McKeon, president of GM North America, in a statement.
“We also want to emphasize that our mission is to provide a safe, effective and secure environment for all of the people who work for us.”
The move is expected to cost the company millions of dollars in revenue.
Last year, General Dynamics, the maker of the M4 Abrams, announced that it was closing its health insurance and health insurance business.
In November, Kia also announced that its medical insurance business would close, citing the threat of Ebola.
