Nissan has delayed the reopening of plants close to the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in China.
The Japanese carmaker said in a statement that it had been hoping to restart production at plants in Hubei and the neighboring province of Henan on February 24, but it would keep the factories closed for longer to comply with local government directives.
Nissan plants in Guangdong and Liaoning, which are located many hundreds of miles from the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, have already reopened.
“We continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of our employees in China,” Nissan said in its statement.
