No Proposal Yet To Restrict Local Services in Mumbai Amid Rising Covid Cases, Says Railways
The Mumbai local trains that reopened for the general public from February 1 are being attributed as one of the reasons behind the rise of coronavirus cases in the city. However, both the Central and Western Railways maintain they have ensured passengers follow Covid protocols while travelling in local trains.
'We have taken all precautions and the Western Railways is taking all necessary steps to check the spread of Covid-19,' said CPRO Western Railways, Sumit Thakur. 'We are constantly sanitising our train rakes and we have a dedicated team for this. For the convenience of passengers, we have opened more than 300 booking counters.
