KUALA LUMPUR (REUTERS) - Top Glove, the world's largest maker of medical gloves, has suspended factory operations in Selangor state due to a two-week enhanced lockdown in Malaysia, it said on Wednesday (July 7).

Its medical glove plants in Klang will not be running, in compliance with the Enhanced Movement Control Order directive.

More than half of Top Glove's factories are in Klang.

Malaysia last week imposed tighter restrictions on movement, businesses and factories in the capital Kuala Lumpur and neighbouring Selangor until July 16 to combat a surge in coronavirus infections.

"The company looks forward to safely resuming operations at the appropriate time," Top Glove said.
