Chinese students take college entrance exam

A security guard uses a megaphone to guide students entering a high school to take the annual national college entrance exam, or "gaokao", which has been postponed by a month due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in Beijing, China on Tuesday. Nearly 11 million students took the test, with exam centers in Beijing setting up temperature checkpoints and requiring students to wear face masks as the city tries to curb an outbreak traced to a wholesale market early last month.
