PSNews – Hanoi on February 3 officially closed schools for the week amid a possible spread of the 2019 novel coronavirus (nCoV). In order to keep students learning, many private schools have opened online classes.
Mrs. Hoang Thanh Le, mother of a 10th grade student at Phan Huy Chu High School, Dong Da District said, “According to the school’s announcement, the school closes from February 3-9. Yet, students still study through the school’s learning applications.”
