The little schoolchildren from China are going back to school, after the forced break by COVID-19. But not without having the tools to respect social distancing measures!
Among these tools, there is the wearing of fairly original hats, which Chinese students sported when they returned to school on April 26th. These hats are topped with one meter rods, which aim to remind them of the instructions for social distancing.
Here are pictures taken in Hangzhou primary school, located in Zhejiang province, in eastern China.
It’s an interesting artistic project , students can even customize their headgear!
These hats are reminiscent of those formerly worn by members of the Song dynasty. At the time, they aimed to prevent officials from whispering with each other. "They were already used for social distancing," said the director of a Taiwanese journalism school.
In China, schools are gradually reopening and students must follow strict hygiene rules, mentioned the Europe 1 channel. Each student works on a separate table and must wear a mask all day.
In Taiwan, middle school students will wear visors over their masks, reported Courrier International.
Do you think it would be a good idea for students in your town?
