NEW DEHLI — Indian Railways is working to convert at least 5,000 passenger cars into temporary hospital space, Bloomberg news reports

The conversion process includes installing mosquito nets, charging stations for mobile devices and computers, and working space for paramedics.

With its 125 hospitals, the railroad is making room for about 6,500 beds to handle coronavirus cases. The rail network stopped all passenger service in March — a move not seen before, even during war.
