Our university is also particularly concerned about the working and living conditions of international teachers and has set up special leadership to organize and implement relevant work. Thank you very much for your support to and understanding of our university’s work so far. At present, we are facing a critical stage of the prevention and control of the 2019-ncov pneumonia and Henan University now requires all international teachers to:
