Bihar lacked in following COVID norms during election campaign: Health Ministry

Union Health Ministry on November 10 informed about precautionary measures taken to conduct recently-concluded Bihar elections. Secretary Rajesh Bhuhsan said, "Bihar has so far done more than one crore COVID tests. During Bihar election campaign, our central team found COVID-19 norms like mask-wearing, social distancing and hand sanitisation were less than satisfactory. But corrective action was initiated by Bihar, once we submitted findings."
