We have recently informed you of a Chinese company which develops a Coronavirus-beater SUV. Auto manufacturers in India have made hard efforts to prevent Covid-19. Multi-national companies like Rolls Royce and Hyundai Motor India are taking measures including requiring all the staff to say greetings instead of shaking hands, screening employees entering the plants with thermal sensors, checking attendance with cards instead of fingerprints.


Covid-19 has spread fear all over the world.

Hyundai, which has 30,500 employees (both direct and indirect ones) at its Sriperumbudur factory is screening all the people who enter its premises. Besides, all employees are required to wash their hands at all canteens and checkpoints.

Director-production of Hyundai, S Ganesh Mani, stated,

“We started taking basic precautions a month ago. For the past 15 days, we have started a habit of namaste and all employees are being screened with non-touchable thermometers at the gates.”

Moreover, all foreign travels have been reduced as much as possible and numerous activities have been substituted by video conference.
