After listening to the report made by two vice principals of LJU on novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) prevention and control, Vice Governor Zhang emphasized that as the new semester was approaching, universities should fully understand the extreme importance and toughness of the epidemic prevention and control work once the students return to school and the size of the staff gathers. He also insisted that it was still not a good time to be relaxed and should make overall plans for the opening of the new semester and strive to achieve the "double victory" of epidemic prevention and control.
Afterwards, Vice Governor Zhang and his party came to the International Students Apartment to extend condolences to the international students and foreign teachers who were staying within the campus during the winter holidays.
