Originating in Wuhan, a small town by Chinese standards, the coronavirus quickly spread all over the world with leaps and bounds, causing panic and horror. However, after unprecedented measures to combat the virus in China, the authorities managed to take control of it. Due to a significant improvement in the Middle Kingdom, Apple's retail stores were reopened, closed in February due to an outbreak of coronavirus.
In a recent statement, the head of the American corporation, Tim Cook, said that by March 27 all retail stores and service centers would be closed around the world in order to avoid the risk of employee infection. Moreover, Apple will continue to pay them wages, as if nothing had happened. As noted above, only China will become an exception, where, on the contrary, they resumed work.
The changes will not affect online stores and branded service centers, which will continue to operate normally.
