CBSE Shares Poem On Coronavirus Preventive Measures
CBSE has said that the board exams have not been postponed and will be held as per the schedule released by the board earlier.
Amid the coronavirus scare, CBSE has been getting many queries from parents and students about the postponement of ongoing board examinations. The queries have also increased with several states declaring shut down of schools and educational institutes in the upcoming weeks.
The board, to one such query, has replied that the board exams have not been postponed and will be held as per the schedule released by the board earlier.

The board, however, has taken cognizance of students' and parents' concerns and has allowed face masks and sanitizers during the board exams.
CBSE, earlier, had asked the schools to create awareness among school children about preventive interventions such as frequent hand wash and respiratory etiquette. The board, which has been sharing memes this exam season, has created a rhyming poem about the preventive measures and screening of coronavirus.
The poem that espouses the benefit of 'Namaste' in preventing coronavirus from spreading through human contact. The full text of the poem reads,
"Namaste from CBSE
We bow to the light in you
And may your hands
Be always clean
To tough your face
Be never keen
Cough and Sneeze
They help to screen
Do namaste to all
No handshake routine."
The board also shared the poem through its social media accounts on different platforms.
