Honda Motor Co. on Wednesday said that it has partially resumed four-wheel vehicle production in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicentre of the new coronavirus outbreak, after obtaining permission from local authorities.

With the resumption in Wuhan, Honda has now put all of its production bases in China back to work after the pneumonia-causing disease disrupted operations, The Japan Times reported.

Honda initially aimed to restart production in the capital of Hubei province as early as February 24, but was compelled to extend the suspension until Tuesday in accordance with the policy of the Chinese provincial government.
