Volkswagen has delayed restarting production at the majority of China plants in its joint venture with SAIC Motor and the Tianjin plant in its JV with FAW Group until February 17 amid the spread of coronavirus.

One car-manufacturing plant Volkswagen collaborates with SAIC in Shanghai and majority of the plants in the FAW joint venture will restart on February 10, according to a report by Reuters citing statement of Volkswagen.

Volkswagen said it was dealing with supply chain challenges as the country goes back to work after the extended Lunar New Year holiday, as well as limited travel options for its workers.

The virus has infected thousands and has killed over 800 people in China.
