It also mentioned that the company has identified only 35 incidents all over the world till Sep 1st, but the Canada-based government agency ‘Health Canada’ reported that more than 70 Galaxy Note 7 explosions occurred just in the U.S. The usage of Galaxy Note 7 was also banned on flights by many governments, even India also banned the device where the company is yet to ship the devices.

Today, Chinese Civil Aviation Authorities joined alongside the other governments by banning the usage and charging of the device in the flights. The device can’t be placed even in the checked in baggage. The CAAC also ordered the airlines to remind the users about the safety alerts. While the sales of the Galaxy Note 7 are stopped all over the world from September 2nd except in China.
