The Central Railway has instructed its personnel to intensively clean coach fittings as they are touched by thousands of passengers every day.
In the wake of coronavirus outbreak, Central and Western Railway on Saturday ordered the withdrawal of blankets and curtains from AC coaches as they are not washed every day.
Other items in the bedroll, including bed sheets, towels and pillow covers, are washed every day.
Kindly note that it has been decided to withdraw curtains & blankets from AC coaches of trains as they are not washed every trip, for prevention of #coronavirus. Passengers may please bring their own blankets if need be. Inconvenience is regretted. @RailMinIndia @PiyushGoyalOffc— Western Railway (@WesternRly) March 14, 2020
