Government Nitish Kumar in

Bihar on Saturday came out with a number of new restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19, which has seen an increase across the country in the recent past.

The instructions were issued by the state house department after a high-level meeting, chaired by Kumar, reviewed the situation in Bihar.

The reopening of schools and colleges, which were scheduled for April 5, will now be postponed until April 11, and all institutions are headed to rewrite tests and exams accordingly, the department said in a statement.

It has also been ordered to deploy additional police force at bus terminals, train stations, vegetable markets and canteens to ensure social distancing and prevent overcrowding.

Communication stated that the entry of stray visitors inside government offices will remain restricted, while public transport vehicles will be allowed to move, with the number of passengers not exceeding 50 percent of total capacity, until April 15th.

Holding all functions, except weddings and funerals, in public places will be prohibited and the maximum number of people allowed in a wedding should not exceed 250. No more than 50 people will be allowed to attend a ‘shraaddh’ , it is said in the announcement.

The district administrations in question have been authorized to implement COVID protocols such as mandatory face mask wearing and social distancing, the home department said.

Bihar has witnessed an increase in new cases. The state now has 2,942 active cases, more than doubling from a week ago.

The number of new infections reported in the last 24 hours was 836.

The increase has caused the recovery rate in Bihar, which was more than 99 percent until recently, to drop to 98.31 percent.
