MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – The government of Mexico’s Puebla state said on Friday that “conditions do not exist” to re-start activities in the automotive and construction industries, given the need to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

German automakers Volkswagen AG <VOWG_p.DE> and Audi <NSUG.DE> both have major plants in the state, but they have idled production to the coronavirus pandemic.
