Five-hundred key enterprises in Jilin province have resumed production, local officials said on Tuesday at a news conference.

Around 93 percent of 3,207 industrial enterprises above a designated size in Jilin have resumed, said Zhang Baozong, deputy director of the provincial publicity department. Also, 86.7 percent of medical and health enterprises above a designated size have also restarted, he said.

All five automobile plants of Changchun-based automaker FAW Group had resumed work as of Sunday, and more than 25,000 workers returned to their posts at the group's 276 component supply enterprises.

"Under COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control requirements, the plant area has been put under lockdown management," Shu Bo, deputy director of Weishan Plant of FAW, told Jilin Daily on Tuesday. "Strict measures on epidemic prevention and control have been launched, including nucleic acid testing and disinfection, which can help protect all workers."

To ensure a smooth work resumption, Jilin's provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology has provided specific services for enterprises in different conditions.

So far, the department has distributed epidemic prevention materials to the enterprises, including 294,000 COVID-19 rapid antigen test kits, 182,000 surgical masks and 246,000 bags of traditional Chinese medicine, Jilin Daily reported.
