Maroon Group continues to closely monitor the events that are unfolding as a result of the coronavirus (2019-nCoV.) outbreak. As the number of confirmed cases increases, our thoughts remain with those directly affected. As follows are a few key updates:
• Extended plant closures are being implemented in several regions of China. Many factories located in Hubei province have announced closures through the end of February.
• Intra-country logistics remain quite challenging based on travel restrictions in place.
• This week will be telling to determine how quickly normal operations will resume after the New Year Holidays closures and coronavirus outbreak containment efforts.
