Playground of Beijing No.2 Experimental Primary School
Beijing's educational authorities on Friday started investigating a number of school playgrounds built in the city in 2015 after some parents fumed over a primary school's running track which allegedly sickened their kids.
The Beijing West District Commission of Education announced on its website that it had ordered the Baiyunlu branch of Beijing No.2 Experimental Primary School in the city's Xicheng district to close its playground, after many parents and guardians lodged complaints that the new running track was causing their children physical discomfort.
"My granddaughter had a blood test earlier, and doctors found problems with four of the medical indicators, including a relatively higher lymphocyte count. I suspect that the school's synthetic running track is the reason for her discomfort," Luo Wenqian, whose 9-year-old granddaughter is a pupil at the school Uomo Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Nere Saldi , told the Global Times.
The school refused to comment on Luo's allegation on Friday.
The playground was firstly reconstructed in the summer of 2015, and was then painted from April to May of this year, The Beijing News reported Friday.
"The school had asked children from the fourth, fifth and sixth grades to rehearse for its sports festival from May 28, and many children suffered nosebleeds and blurry vision afterward," a parent surnamed Sui told the Global Times via a phone call on Friday.
An online group formed by 500 parents on the Chinese social media application WeChat has conducted a survey involving 241 students Donne Nike Air Vapormax 2018 Rosa Scontate , among whom 205 have suffered physical discomfort since September 2015, with 50 percent of them having nosebleeds.
Like Luo's granddaughter, 73 students have had blood tests, and 48 had abnormal results, the survey reported.
Beijing West District Commission of Education has promised to test the playground and dispatched an investigation team to look into the students' physical problems, adding that all playgrounds built during the summer holidays in 2015 will also be probed.
This is not the first time that students have suffered physical discomfort allegedly due to running tracks in China. In October 2015 Uomo Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Oro Scontate , many students in a dozen schools in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shaanxi provinces, Shanghai and other places suffered nosebleeds, rashes and fever after schools laid down new running tracks during the summer vacation, media reported.
Wang Zongping, a PE professor at the Nanjing University of Science and Technology Uomo Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Argento Saldi , told the Global Times previously that both the manufacturing and construction process could result in dangerous running tracks.
China has adopted national standards for the quality of synthetic rubber as track material, but no standards for adhesives and additives used in the process of construction, the Xinhua News Agency reported in 2015.

JUBA, May 20 (Xinhua) -- South Sudan has denied authorizing the killing of civilians in the Yei border town following the latest United Nations report blaming government troops (SPLA) on 114 civilian killings.
President Salva Kiir's spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny said in Juba on Friday that the UN report is false Uomo Nike Air Max 97 2017 Retro Bianche Scontate , arguing that the SPLA could have acted in self defense while fighting opposition rebels operating in the restive town located some 150 km South West of the capital.
"It is utopian accusation given that there is no number of people (killed) like such in Yei. What we know is the killing of civilians along ethnic lines on roads in Yei," Ateny told Xinhua.
The escalation in fighting after the renewed violence in July 2016, prompted the UN Special Adviser of the Secretary General on Prevention of Genocide Adama Dieng in November last year to warn of the prospect of genocide occurring following civilian targeted killings along ethnicity in Yei.
"What is in Yei is the army (SPLA) and government soldiers fight in self defense unless rebels attack them," he added.
