Nissan Kyushu plant in Japan

Nissan Motor said it stopped operating the auto production line at its Kyushu plant in Japan to start disinfection work after a worker there tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on March 31. It did not give an indication of when operations may restart, saying that it would be decided based on the guidance of health officials.

Nissan said that they place the highest priority on the safety and health of their employees, their families, and related parties.

Last week, the automaker stated it would temporarily adjust production at three of its production facilities in Japan due to declining demand in the automobile market.

About 2,178 people in Japan have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 57 people in the country.
