Operations halted at factories in eastern China’s Kunshan after COVID-19 cases reported, report says.

Apple Inc’s prime supplier Foxconn Technology Group halted operations at two of its factories in eastern China’s Kunshan after new COVID-19 cases were reported on site, the South China Morning Post reported on Monday.

The operations at those plants have been suspended since Wednesday last week, with all employees confined to dormitories inside, the report said.

The two Foxconn plants, located at Dianfa and Fuhong in the northern part of Kunshan, are two of four manufacturing campuses operated in the city by the Taiwanese firm, which is also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd.

Apple and Foxconn did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.
