Popular during the first wave Covid-19, the Indian Railways’ isolation coaches are back in demand amid rising cases. Nandurbar, a Maharashtra district close to Gujarat border, has asked for around 95 coaches and 1,500 beds. The district is currently under lockdown till April 15. A memorandum of understanding signed between Western Railways and the district authorities on April 11 noted that ‘each Covid-19 care rake will have 20 coaches, comprising modified Sleeper and General coaches.  Each coach can accommodate 16 patients and will be suitably positioned as mutually agreed upon.
