Major multinational companies are suffering a jolt on production due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Apple’s supply chain has suffered disruptions due to its major manufacturing companies being shut down. However, Foxconn, Apple’s biggest iPhone manufacturer, was approved to resume production but with only 10% of its workforce capacity.

Foxconn, which is one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturers must improve their safety and health measures in order to get approval from the Government to resume operations and avoid major loses.
