HUE Takes Prevention Measures to Fight COVID-19
Although the outbreak of Covid-19 was during the winter vacation, Haikou University of Economics has taken a series of effective prevention and control measures. The campus was locked down at the very beginning. Students and Teachers were asked to have self quarantine by house isolation, like the rest of the people in the whole country. To ensure the safety and health, HUE demanded that students should not come back to school as usual but they began their classes on line since the beginning of March.
As the virus is spreading widely in the world, international students and foreign teachers of HUE are doing well in good cooperation with the school authority. The four international students who did not go home in the vacation stay in the school campus and they are taken good care by their teachers. Mr. Chris Knudson, the most experienced foreign teacher, has been staying in Haikou during the whole period. He and his family, like other local people, wear face masks and stay home with very limited excursions outside.
The Chinese people, following the government’s instructions, have tried their best to do three very important things: self quarantine by house isolation, wear face mask in public venues and wash hands many times in a day. During the whole period of the combat against the epidemic, there is no social chaos, no looting or vandalism and even no food shortage. Theatres, cinemas, restaurants and other recreation venues are all closed, while the supermarkets are always open.
With the combined efforts by the government, the medical personnel, the public service workers and all of the people, we have put Covid-19 under certain control at current state. People begin to resume their work and daily life as usual step by step. The majority of the service sector, like the restaurants and other shops are beginning to start their business although still with small number of customers.
We are sure we shall fight Covid-19 until we achieve final success in the end.
International students in HUE are fighting Covid-19.
