As the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic Wuhan, an industrial powerhouse and the capital of Hubei Province, is locked down. The Hubei Provincial Government has ordered most enterprises to resume work no earlier than midnight tonight (February 13).

Clover Lee of ESM-China wrote an article late last week summarizing what's happening to whom in Hubei Province. The article appeared in EE Times, a sister publication of ESM-China. I have selected the content from Ms. Lee's that relates directly to display panel production, have rewritten as seemed appropriate, and added some content of my own.
