Universities in Guangxi region reopen as epidemic wanes

South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region has partially reopened its colleges and universities, with seniors and students with medicine-related majors returning to campuses, as the COVID-19 epidemic wanes, reports Xinhua/Asian News Network.

Li Chuanqi, president of Nanning Normal University in the regional capital of Nanning, said all students were quarantined for 14 days before returning to school and were not allowed to leave the campus upon arrival. Other preventive measures include wearing masks in classes, scattered distribution of seats in classrooms and having meals separately.

The first batch of students was arranged to return on Saturday and Sunday, 18 and 19 April, to avoid mass gathering within one day, according to Li.
