According to Automotive News, the reason for shutting down the factory is the company's employee who is suffering from the coronavirus.

The enterprise consists of five factories, while only one has been stopped working. It produces such cars as the Palisade, Tucson, Santa Fe, and Genesis GV80. So far, the factory has been closed indefinitely. The workshops are disinfected, and all those who came into contact with the infected are sent to quarantine.

It is worth noting that the closure of the factory coincides with the start of the launch of Hyundai's enterprises, which had previously been idle due to a lack of components from China. This is a big blow to the company. The automobile complex in Ulsan produces up to 1.4 million cars a year. This is almost a third of the company’s total global production.

Now, South Korea is the second country in terms of the number of people infected with the new coronavirus. The total number of cases exceeded 2,000 people.

The COVID-19 was first discovered in Wuhan (China) in December 2019. To date, we know about 82,000 cases and 3,000 deaths.
