People are taking things way too literally. Here are my suggestions to make to the announcement on top.
REMOVE the following Points:
We know we are late concerning the shipping and many of you are asking about the delivery date.
The latest news from the Chinese Gov is to reopen factories on the 24th due to the Coronavirus OutBreak. Our factories are reopening slowly but they are still missing some workers as they need to spend 14 days in quarantine.
We have already 700 pieces at the factory, ready to be packed and shipped. (can be shipped only when the factory reopens): we are trying to ship those to our other factory (which is opening on 2d) to start working on them asap
Rephrase the following point or remove it
Totally 11K will be done before the 10th of April.
to something like:
We are estimating to ship additional 11K units by 10th of April.
Add the following point
We are doing micro status updates daily which can be tracked on the following thread: General info about shipment and manufacturing
Maybe add Daily Status update to the title of the thread.
