Apple closes all stores outside of Greater China

Apple Inc. said Saturday it’s closing its hundreds of retail stores outside of Greater China until March 27 and is moving to remote work in order to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.

In a letter posted on Apple’s website, Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said that the “most effective way to minimize risk of the virus’s transmission is to reduce density and maximize social distance,” which led to the decision to temporarily close the stores and move corporate employees outside of Greater China to work remotely.

Somebody, please explain to me the logic of leaving stores open in the worst hit country and shutting them everywhere else?

One rotten apple spoils the whole bunch? I don't really know.


So people will have to go 3rd party for repairs which will void their warranty and what about those who are still waiting for their repaired device to return?
