Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar held a review meeting on the status of infection on Saturday.
The Bihar government has decided to keep the schools and colleges closed till 12 April. This decision was taken in the meeting of the Crisis Management Group held immediately after the review meeting of CM Nitish Kumar on Saturday.

Doctors also said – opening school right now is dangerous
The pace of spread of infection in Bihar is like September of last year. The maximum number of cases were coming here in August and the situation is being re-created the same way. In such a situation, government schools are open and private schools were to start physical classes mostly from April 5, 6, 7 for the new session.
The doctors were also frightened by this decision of the schools. On Friday, Bhaskar gave news on the trends of Corona and preparation of schools, and on Saturday, many doctors themselves came forward and said that it would be wrong to do so. It would be dangerous to open a school right now.
The second strain of Corona is dangerous for children
Due to the second wave of Corona, the situation in many states of the country remains worrisome. Cases are also increasing rapidly in Bihar. According to Dr. Sanjeev Kumar, the Kovid Nodal Officer of Patna AIIMS who has treated the most corona patients here, this decision of schools is going to increase the risk of corona. The strain that the corona has spread at this time is much more contagious than the previous strain. It is also engulfing children.
