TOKYO -- The new coronavirus pandemic will spur long-term growth in PCs and data centers, Lenovo Group said on Wednesday as the world's largest notebook computer revealed a fall in quarterly profit after supply chain disruptions.

Yang Yuanqing, Lenovo's chairman and chief executive, said the company is seeing increased demand for PCs due to consumers shifting to working and studying from home. "We believe this will not be just short-term demand," he told media on Wednesday.
