Apple’s iPhone maker Foxconn reopens China plants amid virus outbreak

Apple Inc’s main iPhone maker Foxconn was given the signal to reopen two of its major plants in China despite the severe situation of the coronavirus outbreak in the country. According to sources, Apple Inc aims to resume production even though only 10% of its workforce has readily returned to work.

The world’s largest contract electronics maker got approval from Apple to resume its iPhone assembly lines at factories in the eastern central Chinese city of Zhengzhou and in its southern manufacturing hub in Shenzhen.

In Zhengzhou, only 16,000 workers, less than 10% of the total workforce, reported back to the factories as of Monday. Meanwhile, in Shenzhen, around 20,000 workers, or roughly 10% of the total workforce continued production after the Lunar New Year.

“As a matter of policy and for reasons of commercial sensitivity, we do not comment on our specific production initiatives,” Foxconn said in a statement.
