WUHAN, March 12 (Xinhua) -- Wuhan University will offer an online sakura show during the flower season, as its campus remains closed amid the coronavirus epidemic.
The campus will be off-limits to the public, but the university will present a 10-day, cloud flower show for free during the blossoming season of its famous sakura flowers to meet the demand of its teachers, students, alumni and the general public, the university said in a notice Thursday.
The measure aims to help maintain closed-off management over the campus to avoid any bounce in the number of virus infections. The core areas of sakura will be under tight control starting on Friday, according to the notice.
The university will work with media outlets to host the online flower show. The cloud show serves to "present the beauty of sakura in bloom" and to "spread positive energy in society," the university said.
Wuhan University is a key university in China. It is located in Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus outbreak in central China's Hubei Province. It has delayed the spring school term due to the epidemic.
