The Chinese city of Zhengzhou locked down some areas near Foxconn Technology Group’s main iPhone manufacturing base, with state media reporting operations remain normal amid concern of further trouble for Apple Inc.’s supply chain. 

Local authorities announced late Friday they are placing some areas in the Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone under quarantine effective immediately, according to a statement on its official WeChat account. People in the area will not be permitted to leave, according to the statement.
