KOCHI: In the wake of increasing numbers of Covid-19 positive cases across the country, many are coming up with innovative ideas to tackle the medical emergency diligently. According to Asset Homes managing director Sunil Kumar V, more than 1,000 isolation beds can be made using the coaches of Indian Railway. “We have 12,617 trains with 23-30 coaches in our country. We can easily convert them into ‘mobile hospitals’ with facilities like consultation rooms, medical store, ICU and pantry.
Each train can accommodate at least 1,000 beds. Using the 7,500+ railway stations, the patients can be admitted to the trains,” he said. With a 1.3 billion population, even if 10 per cent of the public get infected, the country will require around 10 crore beds.

"Converting 1 LHB coach to hospitals will require minimum 2 months" - On what basis did you conclude this?
RCF alone manufactured around 60 LHB coaches per month consistently during 2019-20. And in the past, during wars, IR modified existing rakes into medical emergency coaches for the military within days, with the help of the military. They can do a conversion in a matter of days.
"Also where will u get LHB coaches for running passengers trains when train operation will start if u convert lhb coaches to hospitals? " - No
