Yamaha Motor halts production at two plants due to COVID-19
According to a Reuters report, Yamaha Motor Co will temporarily halt its motorcycle production at two plants in India to protect employees from a surge in coronavirus infections.
A decision on whether the plants will resume production in June onwards will be made after assessing the situation, the spokesperson said.
He did not say whether cases of Covid-19 had been reported at either of the plants.
Many Indian states have imposed strict lockdowns over the past month as Covid-19 infection rates soared.
The number of new coronavirus cases and deaths held close to record daily highs on Monday, increasing calls for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government to fully lock down the world’s second-most populous country.
