The Indian Railways, which runs 13,523 trains daily, has suspended all passenger services till April 14.
Here are some important measures by the Railways —
1– As per the sources, railways might now offer its coaches and cabins as isolation wards for patients found positive for coronavirus.
2– In order to fight against coronavirus, the Railways Board has issued instructions to all its production units to manufacture items like simple hospital beds, medical trolleys for hospitals and quarantine facilities, and IV stands in their production units.
3– In these tough times, Railways has decided to release full salary to its construction workers.
These initiatives by Railways are commendable. Let us also do our bit by staying indoors and helping anyone in need 🙂
