To prevent the transmission of COVID, GM’s Chinese workers sleep, live and work in the factory

Staff at the General Motors plant in Shanghai have been asked to sleep in the plant to allow the plant to remain open in accordance with current regulations to stop the spread of COVID.

According to a Reuters report, workers sleep, live and work in the factory and are completely isolated from the rest of society to prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Shanghai lockdown rules have caused problems for several carmakers and suppliers in the industry, including Tesla, which suspended production for four days this week because it failed to achieve the same “closed society” solution as General Motors.

The Shanghai plant is part of a joint venture between GM and China’s SAIC, and currently produces Buick, Chevrolet and Cadillac in place east of the city’s Huangpu River. When Autonews asked GM to comment on the report, the company declined to comment, saying only that the factory produces vehicles at a normal rate.
