According to the tech giant, the closures will last at least two weeks, until 27th March 2020.
However, according to the firm’s CEO, Tim Cook, they have reopened all their stores in China which were closed in early February at the peak of the virus outbreak.
Henceforth, the firm will only operate their online stores, with workers operating remotely.
