Tesla chief financial officer Zach Kirkhorn stated that there will be 1 and a half week delays due to the decision to close this transition, and said that it will cause a small decrease in profitability rates for the first quarter of 2020.

Tesla is not the only company to take steps due to the virus outbreak. Internet giant has temporarily closed all its offices in China due to the virus in a statement made on Google today. Apple and Facebook restricted the travel of employees.
