MOSCOW — Russia’s largest carmaker, AvtoVAZ, plans to keep building cars despite the first two cases of the coronavirus among its workers.

“The situation is under control. Everything is working, is on schedule,” a company spokesman said on Saturday.

AvtoVAZ produces Lada cars. Renault holds a controlling 68 percent stake in the automaker.

AvtoVAZ’s factory employs around 35,000 workers in Russia’s Volga city of Togliatti.

Russia has so far reported 253 cases of the virus and one death, has introduced a raft of economic and social measures to limit its spread.

Moscow has suspended most public events and restricted mass gatherings, banned entry of foreign nationals and closed some schools.
