STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Traton’s (8TRA.DE) Swedish truck maker Scania is temporarily laying off nearly all its 19,000 staff in the country due to the coronavirus outbreak, public service radio reported on Thursday.

A Scania spokesman said the lay-offs affected factory and headquarters staff, but not the sales force and service functions.
