Apple To Reopen Its Stores In Beijing, China, Despite The Coronavirus Outbreak

Apple is ready to reopen its retail stores in China after closing them earlier this month amid the coronavirus outbreak, but with limited hours.

It seems that Apple is ready to reopen its retail stores in China after closing them earlier this month amid the coronavirus outbreak. As of now, the epidemic has confirmed over 64,000 infected cases around the world, mostly in China.

This Friday, the tech giant will reopen its Apple Stores in Beijing, as stated by the stores’ pages on the official website of Apple. However, the stores will work for shorter hours, between 11 AM and 6 PM local time instead of 10 AM and 10 PM as usual. The other Apple Stores in China will still be closed.

Apple To Reopen Its Stores In Beijing

Last month, Apple started closing its stores in China temporarily when the world was having increasing concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. The iPhone maker also closed its offices as well as contact centers in China. Initially, the tech giant planned to reopen its stores on February 10 but said last week that the stores would be closed until further notice.

The first case of the coronavirus was found in Wuhan, China, in late December last year. So far, nearly 1,400 people have died from COVID-19, the official name of the disease caused by this virus.

Apple did not respond immediately to a comment request.

Earlier this week, we learned that the Mobile World Congress, the largest annual event of the phone industry, has been canceled with the same concern over the spread of the coronavirus and as many big players have already pulled out from the event due to fears over the virus.
