Hubei province, one of the deadliest epicenters of Covid-19 in China, has reopened its schools today.
But only the students of grade 9 and 12 are heading back to schools as they have big exams ahead in the upcoming summer. The rest of the batches will still remain at homes, reports BBC.
Most grade 12 students in other parts of China already returned to school in March as they have to sit for the infamous 'gaoko' - university entrance exam within a few months.
All of the Hubei students had to do a coronavirus test before returning to school and there will be measures to ensure social distancing like partitions in the school canteen, reported Chinese state media.
