The guidance will be especially interesting after reports yesterday that Apple could increase iPhone production by 20% in 2021.
- On the coronavirus front there were reports that the government won't approve further plans to purchase BioNTech vaccines on case-by-case basis and that the current 15 million doses already in the pipeline for Taiwan are sufficient for the rest of the year. Taiwan's FDA announced yesterday that 626k doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine manufactured in a Thai plant have passed a series of tests and been given a lot release certificate, this is the first batch of vaccines shipped from Thailand to Taiwan.
