SHANGHAI -- A full 63% of Japanese companies with factories in Shanghai have suspended operations there, an industry survey released Thursday shows, due to the city's coronavirus lockdown disrupting the supply chain.

The figure is based on answers from 54 Japanese manufacturers compiled by the Shanghai Japanese Commerce & Industry Club. Combined with those reporting facility utilization of 30% or below, 91% of businesses are experiencing a significant impact.
