TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Nissan Motor Co Ltd (7201.T) will slash its domestic auto production plans by 70% in May and 43% in June, documents seen by Reuters show, as the impact of the coronavirus shakes the troubled automaker.

Manufacturers around the globe are reeling from consumer demand shrunk by the spread of the coronavirus.
