Renault says all its plants worldwide with the exception of those in China and South Korea are now shut as the manufacturer takes stock of the spread of the coronavirus.

In information sent to just-auto by Renault, the company notes all factories have stopped, apart from China and South Korea, whose facilities are either back in operation or are in the process of resuming production.

The French manufacturer added it plans to restart activities as soon conditions permit and it will implement what it describes as appropriate measures to respond to commercial demand.

Last week, Renault became the latest automaker to postpone its AGM due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“In the current uncertain context due to the coronavirus pandemic worldwide, Renault’s board of directors has decided to postpone the annual general meeting of shareholders scheduled for 24 April, 2020 to a future date in May or June,” said a Renault statement.
