Apple has opened five stores in Beijing, the capital of China. But not so simple.
A CNBC correspondent reports that retail employees check the temperature of each visitor right at the entrance. In addition, the number of people at the same time in the store is limited.
Point of sale hours are also limited from 11am to 6pm, although usually from 10am to 10pm. The coronavirus continues to rage in the country.
