TOKYO -- Honda Motor announced Monday that it has suspended operations at three automobile plants in Wuhan, China, as coronavirus lockdowns in the country continue.

The suspension comes as employees are unable to go to work due to citywide shutdowns stemming from China's strict "zero-COVID" policy. The Japanese company said it is considering whether operations at the Wuhan facility can be resumed from Tuesday or later.
