Shanghai universities welcome students back

Some universities in Shanghai, China, saw the first batch of students return on Monday 27 April – with a number of protective measures in place to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, writes Yang Meiping for Shine.

At the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, loudspeakers at its gates reminded students of the procedure for return: “Please go through the special channel, get ready with your campus ID cards and health codes, have your temperature checked and swipe your card to enter the campus....” Volunteers and university staff at the gate disinfected students’ luggage and guided them through entry procedures.

The university had announced earlier that its graduating postgraduate students could return from Monday, and graduating undergraduates from Tuesday. Other students can come back in batches from 6 May. Dates for overseas students will be announced later.
