Indian railway has taken the most unpredictable movement by suspending all kind public train service across the country until 14 April 2020 due to nationwide lockdown. It has been the first time in 167 years, that Asia’s oldest railway network has been paused.
Now they’ve decided that 20,000 old train carriages will be converted into isolation wards for patients. World’s fourth-biggest rail administrator has arranged 125 emergency clinics the country over, so can execute the mobile beds.
Each disinfected carriage will have the option to suit up to 16 patients, close by a nurse’ station, a doctor’s lodge, and space for clinical supplies and hardware. The trains, when prepared, will be sent to any area that may be confronting an emergency bed if there will be any positive case.
While India’s medical system isn’t conquered at this point, the old trains could be facilitating as the alternative beds for patients. Currently, the rail is about to offer a perfect, cleaned and disinfected environment for the patients to recover,” Piyush Goyal, the Railways Minister said in a tweet.
