New Delhi. Corona (Covid-19) virus is wreaking havoc in China. People are scared of the strict policy adopted by the government to control Kovid-19. How fearful people are, its hallmark was seen in the factory of Foxconn Technologies, which manufactures the Apple iPhone 14 in Zhengzhou, China. After some workers of the factory were found corona infected, fearful workers were seen running with their belongings in their hands. Several videos of employees fleeing the Apple factory are going viral on social media sites in China.
According to a report in Live Mint, it is being told that the employees are afraid that after the corona infected people are found in the factory, the government will lock the employees in the factory by imposing a strict lockdown here too. Due to this fear, the workers are jumping over the factory fence and running on the streets. Foxconn, however, declined to comment on The Associated Press’s questions on the subject. Located in Zhengzhou, Henan province, Foxconn’s manufacturing facility employs 350,000 employees.

The stampede on the Foxconn campus is also a symbol of the growing displeasure of the people towards the zero covid policy being adopted by the government in China.
