Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said today, Bihar Schools, colleges, and other educational institutions will remain shut till May 15. During this period, state-run schools and universities will not conduct any exams. The announcement was made after a high-level meeting chaired by the chief minister to review the COVID-19 situation in the state.

Schools in Bihar were scheduled to reopen on April 5 but given the number of coronavirus cases, the government had extended the closure of schools, colleges till April 11 but as per the latest update, the educational institutions will now remain closed till May 15.

In view of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, several states have decided to shut down educational institutions and postpone or cancel board exams. Bihar, however, conducted its Class 10 (Matric) and Class 12 (Intermediate) final exams in February-March. Results of these exams have already been declared.

According to Union Health Ministry data updated on Sunday, Bihar recorded 2,61,500 coronavirus infections in a single day which has taken India's total tally of Covid-19 cases to 1,47,88,109, while active cases have surpassed the 18-lakh mark.
