Scary news about automotive in Europe!

Car maker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is temporarily shutting most of its plants in Europe because of the coronavirus outbreak.
As of today, one of Ford's largest plants in the eastern region of Spain, Valencia, has ceased work for a week after three workers have become ill with coronavirus.

It has also become known that one of the largest enterprises in Slovakia, the Bratislav Volkswagen Slovakia plant, is going on a forced vacation to prevent the contamination of staff with COVID-19.

The PSA said it was ceasing production of cars due to frequent cases of COVID-19 contamination near designated production sites in recent days.

Of the European countries, Italy will suffer most from the coronavirus, becoming the first country with national quarantine. Now the situation is also recurring in Spain and, to a lesser extent, in France.
