Indian Railways to provide 500 coaches for COVID-19 are in Delhi! After the Arvind Kejriwal government requested Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways to provide isolation coaches in light of growing COVID-19 cases in the national capital, around 500 isolation coaches are being prepared by the national transporter. Meanwhile, the Delhi government has announced that all nursing homes with 10 to 49 beds are to be used as COVID-only facilities. However, specialized centres for eye, IVF, ENT as well as maternity homes have been exempted, according to an IE report. The Delhi government has asked the nursing homes to make COVID-19 beds functional within three days, failing which action would be taken against them. #Cornavirus #Delhirailway #Delhigovernment
