German automaker Volkswagen stated on Wednesday it would extend suspension of activities at two production plants in central Mexico until April 30 after the government declared a health emergency due to the spread of coronavirus.

Volkswagen is one of the automakers worldwide who are responding to a decline in demand, as well as supply chain challenges after measures taken to rein in the pandemic.

In a statement the company stated the suspension was extended from April 12 to adhere to government orders for a suspension of all non-essential activities.

Volkswagen stated it would continue to pay workers during the suspension.

About 1,510 people in Mexico have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 50 people in the country.
