Anh Kiet - Tho Tien 15:12, 2020/05/07
To ensure safety for Hanoi’s students, classes have been disinfected, while antiseptic solution and electronic thermometers have been made available.

Classes should not be divided into two halves to attend in the morning and afternoon shifts and wearing anti-drop masks at school is not necessary, Kinhtedothi.vn quoted Chairman of the Hanoi People's Committee as saying at a local government regular meeting on May 6.

Chung explained that schools need to check teachers’ and students’ body temperature, ask students to wear face masks and regularly wash their hands, disinfect surfaces of tables and chairs.

On May 4, on returning to school after a long break to prevent the Covid-19 pandemic, all secondary and high school teachers and students seriously followed protocol on preventing Covid-19 in school premises.

To ensure safety for Hanoi’s students, classes have been disinfected, antiseptic solution and electronic thermometers have been made available.

Besides, Chung asked the city's educational sector to reduce study load and trim off exams to ensure quality and prevent the pandemic from spreading in schools.

On the same day, at the meeting of the National Steering Committee for Covid-19 Prevention and Control, experts also said that recently some schools have taken rigid measures to prevent and control the epidemic.

Some measures are considered extreme but unnecessary, even harmful to pupils' health such as asking students to both wear masks and anti-drop masks and turning off air conditioners.

Experts said that there is no need to wear masks inside classrooms, while students should be encouraged to maintain personal hygiene and wash their hands regularly.

However, the use of face masks is recommended only during recess and contact between students should be minimized. Air conditioners can be turned on but windows should be opened from time to time.

Parents are asked not to take children to public places.
