We do extra on sterilizing. Although it is known that virus couldn’t likely survive in the manufacturing and transportation process, we do understand the public concern from a perception prospective. We do expect certain level of shipment delay due to the fact that national holiday is officially extended by government in order to reduce opportunity of public infection. Therefore, our workers could not back to production line as planned. The fact here is that we are not able to estimate how long it takes us to back to business. However, we promise to ensure visibility to our customer about the situation. And we will be in touch regardless holiday or not to support our customers.
