Yesterday, the Prime Minister announced a nationwide lockdown of 21 days in India, in a bid to prevent the Novel Coronavirus from spreading in the Country. In the wake of this COVID-19 Lockdown, several phone launches have been postponed.
Vivo India brand director, Nipun Marya posted an open letter to the brand’s fans on Twitter, which said all product launches from the company have been suspended as well.
Coronavirus has not only wreaked havoc among the world’s populace, but also impacted the tech world severely. Several events such as the Mobile World Congress 2020, Google I/O, E3, Computex, etc have either been canceled altogether or postponed to a later date.
It’s good to see OEMS prioritising the safety of employees, fans, and the general public during these trying times. We believe that the suspension of such events is in the best interest of the people. Let us hope the pandemic will subside soon, and everyone can return to their normal lives.
