The Chinese authorities have implemented control measures that should stem the spread of the virus but the situation complicated by avri factors, including the problem of millions of people traveling on the days of the Chinese New Year celebrations: the virus has now reached several provinces of the country and three deaths occurred in areas that have nothing to do with the city of Wuhan, the one from which the infections would have started.
Apple's attention to this problematic and worrying not surprising or unexpected case. As mentioned, China is the country most affected as well as the outbreak where the infection has taken off and China is also one of the countries in the world where Apple has more users than most of the suppliers.
