In a press release to ET, Oppo mentioned: “we have now suspended all operations at our manufacturing facility in Greater Noida and initiated COVID 19 testing for 3,000+ workers, for which ends up are awaited. (We) will solely enable workers with destructive check outcomes to renew workplace following all security protocols”. The firm added that it’s taking “stringent measures to keep the employees safe and disinfecting the premises”.
The outbreak of COVID-19 on the facility will doubtless create issues for not solely Oppo, but in addition its sister firm, OnePlus. OnePlus makes use of the identical facility to assemble its telephones in India. Therefore, will probably be attention-grabbing to see if the provision of the OnePlus 8-series will likely be delayed in India due to the most recent developments. The OnePlus 8 sequence is at the moment set to go on sale within the nation from May 29th, beginning at Rs. 41,999.
Following the six-week-long shutdown of all ‘non-essential’ companies in UP, the state authorities earlier this month allowed Samsung, Oppo, Vivo and Lava to renew manufacturing at their respective manufacturing services within the Noida-Greater Noida belt. Oppo began operations at its Greater Noida plant at 30 % capability, with about 3,000 workers out of its whole workforce of 10,000+ working in rotation from May eighth.
