The Japanese automaker is massively stopping production in countries where the spread of coronavirus is not under control.

According to the press service of the brand, recently the plant in Spanish Barcelona was stopped. Because of this, I had to temporarily lay off about 3 thousand employees. This is due to the massive incidence of COVID-19 and the violation of the supply of components to the enterprise.

Currently, the timing of the resumption of the enterprise is not reported. Note that earlier Nissan closed several plants in the US and the UK.

Among the last automakers to temporarily suspend their factory, was Tesla. So, at enterprises in Fremont and New York, about 75% of employees were sent on forced leave.
