After the delivery of equipment, and the supplier was ready to send engineers to start installment of machine, then the Covid-19 is occurring. From the beginning of 2020, China has taken very strict measure for control the virus. So the job of installment of equipment was stopped.
After six months, buyer waited long period for installment, at last, China has successfully control the epidemic, and return back to normal life. Then buyer requested supplier to installment of machines. China supplier argued that in face of epidemic, as forth majeure, the engineers were worrying about the infection of disease in abroad, so delay and delay.
