The Mexican unit of Germany’s Volkswagen AG stated on Monday the automaker was ready to resume operations in the states of Puebla and Guanajuato on June 15 after activity was idled in late March because of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
The government and automakers had enforced shutdowns of factories to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Volkswagen has had to wait to resume the plant in Puebla, one of its biggest worldwide, because of a decree from the state government, which said conditions were not yet right for resuming of the plant because of the pandemic’s ongoing spread.
About 93,435 people in Mexico have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 10,167 people in the country.
