Covid-19 Update: All Schools In China’s Wuhan Now Open
Nearly 1.4 million students resumed classes on Tuesday.
Wuhan, the city known as ground zero of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, has now opened up all its schools, as part of its gradual effort to bring life back to normal on the back of the coronavirus outbreak. Around 1.4 million students from the city’s kindergarten, primary and middle schools resumed their classes on Tuesday. It must be noted that high schools had already been opened by the city back in May this year. All the schools in Wuhan have drawn up plans to resume online classes in case another wave of COVID-19 hits.
The novel coronavirus, the SARS-CoV-2, was first identified in Wuhan back in December last year. The city, along with others from the Hubei province was placed under lockdown for nearly three months to contain the disease. The Wuhan lockdown officially came to an end this April after no new domestic cases were reported in the Hubei province. All authorities, as well as students who will be attending school in Wuhan from today, will be mandated to wear masks all the time.
