Apple is one of those companies who have been affected, and as a company who also has employees in the country, it looks like Apple is trying to cheer them up. They are doing this by sending care packages to employees who are stranded in China due to the coronavirus outbreak.
This care package contains a variety of things, one of which is an iPad that will presumably help to keep staff entertained and less bored, along with a bunch of snacks. According to the letter accompanying the care package, it reads, “We are sending our best wishes to you on behalf of the entire Apple Team, together, with another CareKit for you and your families. In the kit, you will find comfort items and an iPad which can be used to facilitate children’s online learning or help pass the time during your prolonged stay away from your home.”
In other news, it has been estimated that due to the coronavirus outbreak, more people will be staying home and companies such as Apple could stand to gain financially.
