The impact is related to the general situation and decisions made by local authorities resulting in among other things workforce shortage in the production and supply chain disruptions. There is also a potential impact on demand going forward. 

Given the uncertain situation, it is not currently possible to predict the full potential impact on the Volvo Group.
