The United Kingdom now depends on Huawei to be connected. Huawei powers three-quarters of UK data and Communications channels. 

Britain hit hard by the naval virus where the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was infected among other officials.

Huawei "keeps Britain connected" and it is "the biggest grant Huawei can make" to its national effort against the novel coronavirus pandemic, said Huawei's Vice President Victor Zhang in an open letter released Monday.

Since the pandemic first hit Britain, data usage has shot up by 50 percent or more, which has placed significant pressure on telecom systems. "That's why reliable mobile and broadband networks are significant," said Zhang.

During the pandemic, Huawei's engineers, authorized as "essential" workers, trying around the clock to keep Britain connected, said Zhang.

"We're working with the likes of Vodafone, BT, EE and Three to keep businesses online and loved ones in touch. To support the effort, we've set up three new warehouses and are redistributing key spare parts around the country to ensure continuity of supply," said Zhang.
