In a state that has a population of some 22.5 million, teachers have reported having to go to hospitals and other facilities to see a doctor or nurse.
Many teachers, including in districts like Amethi, say they are afraid to go outside because of the dangers of the diseases they work with.
Many of them are afraid of contracting respiratory diseases or other diseases as a result of exposure to the pollutants they breathe, teachers say.
The state has also seen a sharp rise in cases of TB and pneumonia, and some cases of MRSA infections among the children in schools.
Many teachers in the district say they have no choice but to go out of the state to visit their children in hospital or other health care facilities.
The number of cases of respiratory illnesses in Bihar has gone up significantly since the onset of the monsoon.
In October, the state recorded 2,988 respiratory infections and more than 8,000 deaths.
In comparison, in March and April, the two months of the year, the number of respiratory infections in Bihar was 1,067 and 858, respectively.
The government has said that the increase in the number and severity of respiratory cases in Bihar is related to the monsoons.
But the health authorities say the real cause is the lack of infrastructure in some schools.
They say that schools in the state, especially those with low enrolment, do not have air conditioning, hot water, food and medical facilities.
The health authorities have launched an awareness campaign, but many teachers and health officials say they do not feel any change in their health or the condition of their children.
The government has promised to provide more health facilities and health facilities in the areas of education and healthcare, said Health Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.
The issue is a big one for teachers.
Many are worried that they will not be able to work with their children, and the teachers will not get adequate medical treatment.
“We have been told by health officials that the government is working on improving the schools facilities.
However, if they don’t work on that, the government will not give us facilities,” said a teacher who did not want to be identified.
“I do not want the government to be responsible for the health of my children,” he said.
According to the National Immunisation Survey 2016, Bihar recorded more than 2,890 new cases of acute respiratory infections, including 1,717 MRSA-related infections.
It has also recorded more cases of tuberculosis, pneumonia, malaria and coronavirus.
This is the highest in the country, said Dr. Amit Srivastava, director of the Centre for Health Security Research, Delhi.
The lack of air conditioning has become a problem.
“It is a real issue.
It is a serious problem,” said one of the teachers who did the survey.
In some districts, teachers report that they have not received any training on the use of the air conditioning systems, or how to set up and use them.
A teacher who works in a school in Kurnool, in the eastern district of Khandwa, said that they had never been trained in the use and maintenance of air conditioners.
“We have no proper facilities to operate air conditioner units,” he told Al Jazeera.
In the eastern state of Bihar, where the monoculture of crops and livestock has led to an increase in diseases, a doctor from Amethim, in Kannur district, told Al JA that it is not possible to control the spread of the disease.
“The air condition unit in the school is broken, the electricity supply is cut, there are no water sources, there is no electricity.
It’s a huge problem,” he explained.
The doctor said that he did not know if the school had the proper equipment for treating patients.
“Even if we have a doctor in the hospital, he or she is not able to do basic things like clean the house or perform basic surgeries,” he added.
In one of Bihar’s poorest districts, Pune, the situation is even worse.
According to an official at the state health department, more than 80 per cent of the school premises in Pune do not even have the proper ventilation systems.
This means that students cannot get clean water, air or fresh air.
“The health department in Puntaburi is dealing with this problem, but there is not enough funding to meet the needs of the patients,” said the official.
The district administration has asked the state government to set aside a certain amount of money to set the school up with proper ventilation.
The official said the district administration is also planning to set a fund to support teachers in their care and to provide facilities like hot water and medical supplies.
The official said that Pune has seen a dramatic increase in cases among children in the schools, especially in the poorer sections of the district.
He said that teachers are being forced to work
