Quartz: China’s Covid-zero Lockdowns Loom over Global Supply Chain

Written by Atul Vashistha

China Covid-zero Supply Chain Disruption
A new covid-19 lockdown imposed last week (Dec. 7) in the port city of Ningbo, China, is raising the specter of further disruptions to an already battered global supply chain.

There are more than 200 cases so far in the most recent cluster in the manufacturing province of Zhejiang, which includes the city of Ningbo. The outbreak is said to be spreading “relatively rapidly,” and has led to the closures of dozens of factories.

This article discusses the possible supply chain risks and ramifications for the global economy because of China’s pursuit of covid-zero.
