Railways converts more than four thousand train coaches as COVID care-cum-isolation facility to help state govts facing shortage of beds

Railways has converted 4,002 train coaches as a COVID-19 care-cum-isolation facility to assist state governments facing shortage of beds in their states. These coaches will be allocated to state governments on request. Minister for Railways, Piyush Goyal took to Twitter to post a few pictures of railway coaches converted to COVID-19 care centre in Maharashtra’s Nandurbar. Railways has deployed 94 coaches in Maharashtra’s Nandurbar. These coaches will be used by the state government when they exhaust their own medical facilities.

Meanwhile, Northern Railways has deployed 50 isolation coaches at Delhi’s Shakur Basti railway station and 25 such facilities will be placed at Anand Vihar. This development came after the Delhi government requested Railways to arrange up to 5,000 beds in view of the rising Coronavirus cases in the national capital.
