Countries are taking steps to respond to the outbreak as a new coronavirus epidemic sweeps the world, and the tech giantises are fighting a very different battle,media MSPoweruser reported. While Amazon, Facebook, Google and Twitter are planning to crack down on fake news and fake news, companies such as Samsung are pushing to get their products shipped on time.
Last week, a Samsung smartphone factory in Gumi was temporarily closed after an employee diagnosed a new coronavirus. The company later confirmed that another worker had been infected and decided to officially close the plant.
Now, Samsung blames its dismal Sales of galaxy S20s in South Korea on the new corona virus outbreak. According to 9to5Google, the company sold 70,800 phones on its first day of trading on the Galaxy S20, far fewer than the First Day sales of the Galaxy S10 (140,000), compared with 220,000 for the Galaxy Note 10.
Discounts on new phones have fallen sharply and the number of visitors to offline stores has hurt sales amid concerns about an outbreak of the coronavirus.

Samsung is not the first company to be affected by the outbreak. Earlier this week, for example,media reported that Microsoft had revised its revenue target because it expected PC sales to fall in the current quarter. However, Samsung has begun shipping Galaxy S20 devices to customers who have pre-ordered them. The Samsung Galaxy S20 costs $399, the Galaxy S20 Plus costs $599, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra costs $799.
The World Health Organization said in its study report on Saturday that there were 85,403 confirmed cases of coronavirus globally. Of these, there are 3,150 cases in South Korea, the worst affected area outside China. Globally, 2,924 people die from the disease.
