Corona: Outbreak halts work at Continental plant in Germany
Although Continental doesn’t plan to cease production at its Aachen factory in Germany until next year, it isn’t making any tyres at all there at the moment. Corona virus is to blame for this pause in production. To date, 19 of the 1,800-strong workforce has tested positive and a further 130 have been quarantined. Continental has thus stopped work at the site until the end of 26 May.
