Bosch on Tuesday said it has halted production at two sites in the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Changchun due to lockdowns imposed in these cities to control the increase of COVID-19 cases.
The company has paused the production at a Thermotechnology factory located in Shanghai and an automotive components site located in Changchun in northeastern Jilin province.
“We are currently seeing temporary effects on logistics and supply chain sourcing,” Bosch said.
“In this situation, we are doing everything that we can to maintain the supply chains as much as possible and to serve the demands.”
About 168,362 people in China, have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 4,638 people in the country. Although these figures are heavily disputed and experts say the government has deliberately under-reported the figures.
