Wuhan, the name itself is being considered to be dreadfull termed alongside the Coronavirus which so far took 1,113 lives across the globe. While the viral infection slowing down seems to be nowhere in the near future, Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak in China has been registering the maximum number of casualties. The city is no less than a graveyard with deserted streets and business shutdowns. While the maximum of the companies instructed the employees to work from home, more than half of the small scale businesses were seen shitting down. Which resulted in the economic slow down with companies showing losses.
However, there is now a particular company in Wuhan which has been working 24*7 in contrast with the normalcy. All the 2,600 employees working round the clock to fulfil the workload with never expected increments. Wuhan Guide Infrared Co that manufactures the thermal imaging equipment used for screening high temperatures in the body has been registering commendable growth in profits. The company which usually sells 100 machines a year, has dispatched 230 machines in the last two weeks itself.
The Chinese military which has been the main customer is now waiting for the products to be dispatched as the production couldn’t meet the demand. Followed by the increase in production, the company registered a market value of $5.16 billion, making it the fourth-largest technology company despite the inflation in the country. Founder Gary Strahan says he’s ramping up staffing and production after receiving an order for 230 systems from an individual customer two weeks ago and quoting prices to thousands of prospective buyers.
Gary who is now one of the billionaires in China stated that they didn’t even have a break for Chinese New Year. “The virus doesn’t stop our production but it makes us much busier,” he averred.
