Volkswagen‘s Mexican unit will start sending workers back to its plant in the central state of Puebla on Tuesday for “preparation and training eyeing a gradual start further ahead,” the automaker stated on Sunday.
Puebla, where the German automaker and it’s luxury brand unit Audi have major plants, stated last week it is not ready to resume its automotive sector because of the concerns about the coronavirus.
The government and automakers had enforced shutdowns of factories to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
About 146,837 people in Mexico have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 17,141 people in the country.
