Instead of just a facemask, the pair of pupils at Hanoi-based University of Transport and Communications arrived for class wearing full protective clothing.

Gloves, masks and even a full-length body suit left some people wondering if they were actually students, or medical staff on duty to disinfect the building.

Thankfully they were there to learn, albeit in as safe a way as humanly possible all things considered in the current climate.

The majority of netizens gave the cautious students a thumbs up on Facebook, with some even dropping love hearts next to the images.

 

Some however did show a little concern the two boys may be feeling a little hot under the collar wrapped up in their protective outfits.
