Apple CEO Tim Cook feels that China is getting the coronavirus under control. Cook expressed his thoughts about the situation in an interview with Fox Business.

"It feels to me that China is getting the coronavirus under control. You look at the numbers that are coming down day by day by day. So, I'm very optimistic there."

He also addressed concerns about production and component supply:

"On the supplier side, we have suppliers, you know iPhone is built everywhere in the world. We have key components coming from the United States. We have key parts that are in China and so on and so forth. When you look at the parts that are done in China we have reopened factories. So the factories were able to work through the conditions to reopen. They're reopening. They're also in ramp so I think of this as sort of the third phase in getting back to normal and we're in phase three of the ramp mode."

Cook was in Alabama to speak at an event for education non-profit Ed Farm which will equip educators in schools and communities with innovative tools and strategies that support active learning for all students, including providing opportunities for students of all ages to learn to code using Swift.

As part of its Community Education Initiative, Apple is providing Ed Farm with hardware, software, funding and professional learning support. Apple has granted Birmingham City Schools with more than 400 new devices being used in classrooms today.

“With the support of Apple, the city of Birmingham, the school system and corporate partners like Alabama Power, we are experiencing a real and needed step change in educational outcomes,” said Anthony Oni, chair of TechAlabama. “What’s being done here in Birmingham is transformational and can make a difference in how all schools incorporate creative innovation into education.”
