Sonal went on to add that “business is critical, but the value of human life is the topmost priority” at Xiaomi. The coronavirus epidemic that originated in China has now claimed over 2000 lives in just the home country and many more through the rest of the world. The epidemic, which recently spread to Europe, has already caused havoc in the tech community. Even the MWC 2020 event had to be canceled due to the epidemic.
