SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Japanese automaker Honda Motor Co (7267.T) plans to resume car production at its China venture with Dongfeng Automobile (0489.HK) on Feb. 14, according to current government guidance, a company spokesman told Reuters on Sunday.

The venture is based in the city of Wuhan in Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak of a new flu-like virus. Hubei’s government has extended the Lunar New Year holiday break to Feb. 13 as it seeks to contain the coronavirus outbreak.
