Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc across the country and now the number of deaths is increasing every day. At the same time, Kenichi Ayukawa, MD, and CEO of the country’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki, has become Corona positive. He has been admitted to Medanta Aspatal located in Gurugram.
According to the Economic Times news, Ayukawa does not have symptoms of corona but he lives alone in India, so he decided to be hospitalized.
Significantly, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) said on Wednesday that it has decided to close its factories between May 1-9 before the scheduled time due to rising cases of Covid-19 infection in the country. The auto manufacturer was supposed to close two plants in Gurugram and Manesar for repair in June, but due to the outbreak of Covid-19, it was decided to close them a month in advance to save oxygen for medical use.
MSI said that under the process of car manufacturing, small quantities of oxygen are used in its factories, while the component manufacturers use relatively high amounts of oxygen.
