Extracts of Spooky’s blogpost
Uploaded only two days ago, the photos were shared by thousands of students and went viral on the Chinese interwebs. Asked about the situation,Mr. Xia, director of Office of Academic Affairs, said the IVs only delivered amino acids to restore students’ health. “The state grants a 10-yuan subsidy for amino acids to each graduating senior that will participate in the gao kao(National College Entrance Exam). Any student that feels not well can go to the infirmary and take amino acids on the IV drip,” Xia said. And because the school infirmary was already full of students in need of medical attention, the school thought they’d arrange IV drip sessions right in the classrooms , to help students save time, instead of having them run back and forth between infirmary and classrooms.
This phenomenon may be copied by countries in Asia that “love” productivity.
