HIGHLIGHTS:


  1. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, said that during these times the company would help India.

  2. Apple will make contributions on the ground to help and support campaigns.

  3. Earlier, the Indian assistance was committed to Microsoft and Google.

 

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, has committed assistance to India as a result of the Covid 19 crisis. Cook said Apple is going to donate on the field for assistance and relief. This will happen very soon when Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, and Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, announce their intentions to support India and different Indian organizations. India became the hotspot for Covid-19 in the world with an acute shortage of medical supplies registering more than 3.5 lakh cases every day.


In a tweet, Cook told us, "We're thinking with the medical staff, our Apple family, and all of us battling in this horrendous stage of the pandemic in India in the middle of the catastrophic surge of COVID cases." Apple will donate on the field to help and relieve efforts."


How this donation is going to happen is not immediately obvious. Apple has not explained whether it will approach non-profit directly and give a contribution to them, or whether it will speak to the government to help them. Referring to Apple, Microsoft and Google were a little less specific about what they are doing in these harsh times to support India. Though Microsoft said it will help India buy oxygen concentrators among other tools and innovations, Google has committed Rs 135 crore to finance, including support for GiveIndia and UNICEF for their relentless public efforts.


Other countries have come to lend India a hand, not just the technology firms. These include the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Pakistan, which provide substantial support for India and its people.


Apple is also one of the businesses that support vaccination for their workers. The iPhone manufacturer partners Walgreens Boots as a dealer with a pharmaceutical chain. Apple will also open a website to allow its employees to make vaccination appointments as part of this collaboration. This push would help Apple to become one of the biggest technology companies to drive its workers on vaccination. The iPhone maker has also donated $15 million in total to the global Covid-19 response. The aim of this donation is to "treat sick people and to reduce the economic and community effects of the pandemic."


"No mistake at this moment's challenge. The family of Apple is grateful to the courageous first responders, physicians, nurses, scientists, public health professionals, and officials worldwide who have given their whole minds to help the world face this event. The Apple family. We still do not know for sure if the biggest danger is behind us," Cook wrote in an earlier statement.
