    BEIJING, March 16 (Xinhua) -- As epidemic season for the Zika virus draws near, schools at all levels should strengthen precautions, a circular issued by the Ministry of Education (MOE) said Wednesday.

    According to the circular, anti-mosquito campaigns are necessary in schools, where extra cleaning should be done to prevent mosquitoes from proliferating, and information about the virus should be widely available to raise awareness about the disease.

    Students are also encouraged to exercise in order to improve their resistance to the Zika virus and to pay attention to food and water safety, the circular said.
