REUTERS: Chinese authorities have blocked Apple supplier Foxconn’s plan to resume production in China from Feb. 10, the Nikkei business daily reported on Saturday, amid lingering concerns about the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.

Public health experts carried out inspections at Foxconn’s factories in Shenzhen and told the company that its factories had a “high risk of coronavirus infection”, making them unsuitable for a production restart, the newspaper said, citing four people familiar with the matter without identifying them.
