NEARLY a third of companies in China's southern manufacturing hub are facing a supply shortage as the coronavirus takes its toll around the world, a survey of companies showed, reported Hong Kong's South China Morning Post.

The survey by the American Chamber of Commerce in South China also showed that 15 per cent of the 237 companies which took part in the survey conducted from March 9 to 14 said they had already run out of some supplies.



Just over half said their manufacturing ability had been 'slightly' impaired by supply chain disruption, while 42 per cent described the impact as 'moderate', with 6 per cent saying they had been 'severely' affected.



Transport and logistics disruptions for themselves or their suppliers were expected by 60 per cent of respondents, with 17 per cent saying a shortage of supplies and 23 per cent citing a shortage of labor among the main disruptions.
