Foxconn pauses production as new Covid lockdown restrictions hit Shenzhen
Apple supplier Foxconn has stopped operations at its Shenzhen sites, in response to a new Covid-19 lockdown in the city.

Acoording to a report in Bloomberg, it has suspended operations at the two campuses and has reallocated production to other sites to reduce impact from the disruption.

The measures from the Chinese government call for non-essential businesses in Shenzhen to halt until March 20.

The Taiwanese company, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry, has its China headquarters in the area and is a key manufacturing site in Guanlan.

China has been operating a zero-Covid policy since the start of the pandemic, a strategy that prompts swift lockdowns and mass testing in affected areas.
