Updated on

Toyota Motor Corp. is halting operations in China until Feb. 9, joining a growing list of global companies that have cut back on business activities in China as a new coronavirus infection spreads, with more than 130 people killed already.

“Given the various factors including the guidelines by the local and region governments and parts supply situation, as of Jan. 29, we have decided to halt operations in our plants in China until Feb. 9,” Maki Niimi, a spokesman for the Japanese automaker, said. “We will monitor the situation and make further decisions on operations from Feb. 10.”
