Chinese factories putting measures to prevent increase in Covid cases

China's factories are going to tremendous measures to keep the machines running—and the worldwide supply chain intact—as an avalanche of Covid cases approaches, including shutting up workers and stockpiling medications, mattresses, and disinfection.

The second-largest economy in the world is quickly removing the barriers that, for nearly three years, mostly kept the virus at bay. A massive network of factories that produce roughly one-third of the world's manufacturing output will be put to the test by the ensuing outbreak of illnesses. These plants are currently acting in an unusual manner to prevent diseases.

The availability of anything from vehicles and golf carts to kitchen appliances and, of course, iPhones around the world could be threatened by outbreaks that could paralyze manufacturing.

It seems like a lifetime ago that establishments all over the US and Europe were engaged in the same fight to fend off Covid. These initiatives serve as a sobering example of how challenging it is to totally keep the virus out of industries in China.

As a way to insulate athletes from the general population and lower the risk of diseases, so-called closed-loop systems, which were first used during the Beijing Winter Olympics this year, are becoming increasingly popular among Chinese manufacturers. Then, businesses like Tesla Inc. employed them to keep workers Covid-free and sustain production during the Shanghai shutdown.

Although its production network in China is currently stable, Volkswagen stated to Bloomberg in a statement that it is receiving advice from other divisions and areas within the group on how to handle an increase in cases. It mentioned the classification of workplaces as direct or indirect as well as the implementation of a comprehensive hygiene strategy.
