Lava is not the first smartphone maker to shut down operations in the country. Samsung, Oppo and Vivo have also halted productions in the country.

The smartphone makers are taking this action after state governments announced lockdown across the nation. In most states, the formal lockdown is expected to continue until March 31, 2020. With more Coronavirus cases being reported every day, the government is taking cautionary measures to restrict people to stay home. With productions halted, these smartphone makers are not sharing how much of their revenue will be impacted.

So far, thirty states and union territories have announced a complete lockdown across 548 districts. In 58 districts across three states, the lockdown is partial. The total number of positive cases now stands at 468 while 34 have recovered. There have been nine deaths so far due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
