Patna: As per the latest update, the Bihar State Government is all set to distribute 73 Lakh Masks among the school students as part of the safety measures for school reopening from 4th January 2020 onwards.

Government and Private Schools have been asked to make all the necessary arrangements to ensure complete compliance with COVID-19 safety norms for resumption of regular classes, as per media report of a leading news agency.

The mask distribution drive among the students in Bihar is being carried out by the state government in line with the recommendations of the Crisis Management Group.

In line with the recommendations, the State Education Department is set to procure more than 73 lakh face masks in order to provide two face masks to each student of Class 9 to 12 studying in government schools.

Confirming the development, Education Department’s Principal Secretary Mr Sanjay Kumar said that “We have published class wise enrolment list of each district to asses quantity of face masks required at government schools. Based on enrolment figure of last academic year, we have estimated that 36,61,942 students are enrolled in Class 9 to 12 across 38 districts. Each student will get two face masks free of cost which implies more than 73 lakh face masks are required for meeting the need.”
