Factories Reopen in China’s Coronavirus Epicenter
“The operation suspension has had a lot of impact on our dealers and suppliers,” says Li Shiquan, a factory manager of Dongfeng Honda Automobile in Wuhan, China.
Some automobile plants and delivery companies have resumed operations in Wuhan as China begins to ease its lockdown on the coronavirus epicenter.
China’s Hubei province said it will allow transportation to resume for the city of Wuhan on April 8, effectively lifting a mass quarantine over the city where the coronavirus first emerged last December.
The easing of restrictions comes as Hubei reported that new infections dropped to zero on March 19, a dramatic plunge from the height of an epidemic that’s infected more than 80,000 Chinese and killed over 3,200.
President Xi Jinping has been projecting confidence that his government has stemmed the outbreak in China. On March 10, Xi visited Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, for the first time since the disease emerged. But with the virus is accelerating its spread globally and Europe now reporting more cases than China, the world’s second-largest economy will struggle to resume full activity.
