Fitch: Coronavirus adds additional risks to US technology sector's China-centric supply chains

Coronavirus supply chain issues may have a lingering effect on the US technology sector, Fitch Ratings said on Tuesday, as reported by Reuters.

"Near-term revenue weakness caused by supply chain disruptions and reduced demand in China is a likely outcome for the US technology companies," the report read. "COVID-19 adds additional risks to the US technology sector's china-centric supply chains."

Fitch further noted that the impact could be more disruptive is the coronavirus situation drags into March and April.
