While the whole world is attempting to slow down the number of new infections with coronavirus, we are concentrating on protecting our employees and instituting measures to make sure our production in Hamburg remains fully operational. Our production site in Hangzhou has returned to 90 percent of production capacity since China ended its shutdown. That gives us hope and sends a positive signal to everyone. We take this opportunity to thank all our employees and partners whose support and engagement are keeping our products and service available to all who need them.
