General Motors Co's global manufacturing chief said Tuesday the automaker has not seen transmission of Covid-19 in any of its plants worldwide since it instituted new safety protocols requiring workers to wear masks, maintain social distancing and take other preventive measures.

"We have had no transmission of the virus in our facilities," since instituting new safety protocols, GM global head of manufacturing Gerald Johnson said during an online presentation sponsored by the Detroit Chamber of Commerce.
