Xiaomi held an online conference today to give information about the current status of the company amid the coronavirus outbreak. The conference was headed by the group’s president Wang Xiang. He explained how the company managed to overcome the COVID-19 crisis. According to official reports, China has surpassed the critical point of Coronavirus spread.
Xiang stated that all the 2,000 employees of Wuhan province were on leave since January 20. But now, gradually, all of them have resumed their jobs with 0% infection from the virus. Moreover, the company issued each on-site office staff with 2 masks, a bottle of alcohol disinfection spray, and another bottle of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer to self-protect themselves from possible infection.
Wang also stated that Xiaomi’s supply chain had resumed its work at above 80% of its total capacity as of March 19, today. The company re-opened more than 1,800 official retail stores across China. Furthermore, the production line of Redmi is operating at full capacity right now. Wang also announced that his company is now working on to donate medical supplies to more foreign countries.
Back in the last week, Xiaomi India’s COO MuraliKrishnan C assured the coronavirus pandemic will not affect the company’s business in the country. However, TV supplies’ fate is still uncertain. Nevertheless, the smartphone maker just launched its Redmi Note 9 series in India, while the Chinese launch still is uncertain. Also, the company will release the new Mi 10 series in India on March 31.
