Tesla has announced that it is reducing the number of on-site workers at its Nevada gigafactory by 75 per cent in response to the growing spread of coronavirus.

It’s not clear how long Tesla’s staff reduction will last, how many employees it affects or whether they will be paid during their time off, reports New York Post.

The plant produces battery packs and electric motors for the Model 3 sedan, Tesla’s most popular car.

Additionally, Panasonic, which helps make Tesla’s batteries in a section of the Gigafactory, suspended its operations last week.
Panasonic said it would ramp down operations and then close for 14 days.
