Those who livestreamed the protests claimed cops beat workers.

A Foxconn employee told the BBC that the issue had been rectified.

Last month, the plant was sealed down due to an increase in Covid cases, leading several employees to escape and return home. The corporation then recruited new employees by offering hefty bonuses.

One worker, however, stated that these contracts were altered so that they “could not receive the promised subsidy” and that they were confined without food.

The company stated that it was in continual communication with affected employees over compensation and bonuses and was doing its utmost “to actively address their concerns and reasonable requests.”

A worker told the BBC on Thursday that he had got 8,000 yuan ($1,120; £926) and was scheduled to receive a further 2,000 yuan. He further stated that there were no more protesters and that he and his coworkers will return to the Foxconn workplace.JAMB portal

The Zhengzhou plant employs over two hundred thousand individuals to manufacture Apple products, including the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Separately on Thursday, officials imposed a lockdown on the city, stating that no one would be allowed to leave until they received a negative Covid test, affecting almost six million people.

China has recorded the largest number of daily Covid cases since the epidemic began, with several major cities, including Beijing and Guangzhou, seeing an outbreak wave.

As its economic development slows, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has urged China to adjust its zero-Covid plan.

In the three months leading up to the end of June, the gross domestic product (GDP) of the world’s second largest economy decreased by 2.6% compared to the previous quarter.

“Although the zero-Covid strategy has become nimbler over time, the combination of more contagious Covid variants and persistent gaps in vaccinations have led to the need for more frequent lockdowns, weighing on consumption and private investment, including in housing,” the IMF said.JAMB Result

The global financial organisation also called on Beijing to vaccinate more people and offer further relief to its crisis-hit property sector.

However, some analysts believe the IMF’s guidance will not convince China to change its policies.

“Given that China is unlikely to be going to the IMF for help, it doesn’t really matter whether they pay attention to this statement or not,” Simon Baptist, global chief economist of The Economist Intelligence Unit, told the BBC.
