Samsung has also donated a number of tablets to educational institutions to help children continue to learn outside the classroom. Previously, the company has donated $29 million in funding and items to local governments and communities affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
In fact, the tech industry has been hit hard by the global pandemic of the new corona virus, and Samsung has suffered from factory store closures and plummeting sales.
Even so, the company’s engineering team is actively assisting other South Korean companies in producing supplies such as masks, while improving plant layout and manufacturing processes to increase production.
Through their efforts, for example, they have succeeded in more than doubling a company’s daily production. In terms of after-sales, Samsung has also announced that it will extend the warranty of products that were unable to receive maintenance services during the outbreak.
