In an elementary school in Hangzhou, China, students were required to wear ‘social hats’ to prevent the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
In China, the fight against the coronavirus epidemic is coming to an end, while some schools continue where they left off. At a school in Hangzhou, China, students returned with an interesting addition to their uniforms.
In Yangzheng Primary School, which gave an interesting homework for the coronavirus outbreak, students made cardboard flats with a height of 1 meter, reminding them to comply with the social distance rule. Photos of hats were published on Weibo, a China-based social media platform.
According to reports in the Chinese media, students can only take their hats off between meals. In class entrances and exits, students pass with a ‘crab walk’ while passing through doors. In addition, students’ fever is measured daily and masks are given.
Winged hats were used many years ago in the city of Hangzhou. During the Song Dynasty, when the city was called Li’an in the 10th century, the emperors made it obligatory for the authorities to wear winged hats to prevent them from whispering to each other.
With the onset of the Covid-19 outbreak, Hangzhou city in Zhejiang province was quarantined. In the province, where early precautions were taken, virus spread has slowed, and approximately 1200 cases have been detected so far.
Approximately 70 thousand cases were detected in Hubey province, the epicenter of the epidemic in China.
