This decision, made by the Japanese automaker, is associated with the spread of coronavirus. Initially, the brand was going to resume the work of its “heavenly” car factories on February 4.

Nissan factories in China will not launch their conveyors this week, as planned, but a little later. Due to the proliferation of the new 2019-nCoV coronavirus, Nissan management has delayed the resumption of work at its four assembly sites in the Middle Kingdom. According to media reports, the three enterprises will begin to function after February 10. But the plant in Hubei Province, where the largest number of cases are recorded, will not be operational until February 14.

 Until that moment, the brand was going to launch its Chinese plants on February 4 after the New Year holidays in China. Because of the coronavirus, other Japanese automakers, Honda and Mazda, had to change their plans.

 Recall that the first cases of coronavirus infection 2019-nCoV were recorded in December 2019 in Wuhan, which is included in the TOP 10 largest cities in China. Today, a new virus has been detected in 23 more countries, including ours.
