1 Mins read

Jeff Bezos has seen his fortune grow by $6.4billion and Amazon is now worth $1.1 trillion after its shares hit a record high on Tuesday amid surging online orders during coronavirus lockdowns.

While Amazon’s founder saw his wealth rocket, his employees at many warehouses have warned their lives are at risk by continuing to go to work.

As of Tuesday afternoon Amazon’s stock was up more than four per cent closing at $2,283.32 per share. That topped the online retail giant’s previous high of $2,170.22 per share on February 19.

With stocks rocketing, Bezos, who currently owns an 11.2% stake in Amazon, saw his fortune grow by $6.4billion to $138billion yesterday, according to a Forbes estimate.
