Apple is keeping an eye out for outbreaks in Italy and South Korea

Tim Cook said that Apple is keeping an eye on the epidemic of coronavirus in both South Korea and Italy.

As reported by Reuters:

“Apple is looking closely at how you are evolving with the epidemic of coronavirus in South Korea and in Italy. Our supply chain is relatively more important in China, but we have suppliers in Korea, suppliers in Italy and also a large company there. So we have to see how it evolves the situation”.

The supplier of Apple chips in Italy is STMicroelectronics and, of course, relies on both to Samsung to LG for its display.

Cook has also confirmed that the company has re-opened 80% (33 of 42) of its stores in China, and that production is starting to grow:

“It will take time, but on the whole I think that this is a temporary condition, it will not affect the long-term.”

Cook was asked if Apple had plans to move production from China to places like Vietnam or Cambodia, and the CEO responded by saying that the supply chain of the company was a global operation, and the speed-to-market and engineering capabilities, as well as the costs, were significant.
