Foxconn said on Tuesday that there had been no deaths at the factory in Zhengzhou, China, the largest iPhone manufacturing facility in the world, hitting back at a video that claimed people had died from a Covid-19 outbreak.

Battling a Covid outbreak at its Zhengzhou factory, the Taiwanese iPhone maker has adopted preventive measures, including requiring workers to have regular testing.

On Monday, a video circulating on Twitter claimed that eight people in a dormitory at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory had all died as a result of the outbreak.

In a statement, Foxconn said it had conducted a “detailed investigation” into the video and said there have been no deaths at the facility.

“We believe this is a maliciously edited video,” Foxconn said.

To deal with the outbreak, Foxconn has quarantined workers on site, according to Reuters. To avoid being locked up at the site, workers have fled the Zhengzhou factory on foot, videos circulating on social media and a Reuters report show.

The Covid outbreak threatens to disrupt iPhone production at the Zhengzhou plant ahead of the critical holiday season apple.
