The coronavirus disease, COVID-19, has totally disrupted daily life in much of China. Many schools and workplaces are closed, large gatherings are banned, and more than half of the country’s population is under quarantine, but children in Wuhan showed that kids will always figure out a way to get out of school, the London Review of Books reported.
The worldwide death toll of the coronavirus disease that originated in Wuhan, China, is now more than 3,900, and the virus has infected more than 111,000 people, mostly in China. On January 30, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared it a global health emergency. The virus has disrupted travel worldwide, leading to flight cancellations, quarantines, and other breakdowns in movement. On Monday, WHO officials said the virus had nearly reached pandemic proportions.
In response, many companies have told employees to work from home, San Francisco banned large events, and some school districts have suspended classes. In China, students in Wuhan whose schools were closed figured out that they could swarm the reviews on their remote-learning app to get it removed from the App Store, effectively evading their classwork.
