Xiaomi: the coronavirus hits the Mi 10!
Last week, Xiaomi announced that it would launch the Mi 10 in India on March 31, but the company announced that the event will be postponed until further due to the COVID-19 epidemic in the country. Of course no one knows how many product cancellations will be announced yet, and we expect to see several device delays in Europe as well.
The decision comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed a 21-day ban on India for restricting the spread of COVID-19, which claimed the lives of 11 people and infected more than 500 people in the country. so far.

In addition to suspending the Mi 10 in India, Xiaomi has also closed Mi Home stores across the country while temporarily postponing home delivery. Earlier, the company also postponed the sale of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max in India, which was supposed to be released yesterday.
In light of the current situation, we are taking all necessary steps to support the government in stopping the spread of # COVID19
Abiding by the lockdown rules, all of our Mi Homes will be closed and we will not be offering home delivery temporarily.
Stay safe! 🙏 #IndiaFightsCorona pic.twitter.com/8j7ktnXJcB
