Earlier reports noted that ZTE was backing out of the MWC event and canceling its press conference there due to practical issues like travel and visa delays. Presently, the death toll due to the coronavirus in China has increased to 563. The number of confirmed cases rose to 28,018.

At the same time, ZTE is taking precautions and strong safeguards regarding the deadly virus, by following the guidelines of WHO and the Chinese health department. "ZTE will ensure that all employees from mainland China, including non-Chinese nationals, have no symptoms two weeks before departure and arrival in the MWC," the company said in a statement.

The Chinese tech company also said that it would ensure that all senior company executives heading to Barcelona for the event to participate in the high-level meetings will self-isolate themselves in Europe for at least two weeks before MWC. Additionally, all ZTE employees are required to undergo two weeks of self-isolation to ensure the health and safety of the staff.


ZTE confirmed that it would be available at MCW Barcelona in stalls 3F30, Hall 3, FIRA GRAN VIA. The company also said that the exhibition stand and equipment are disinfected daily. On the other hand, LG Electronics has confirmed that it won't be attending the event.
