hospitals run by the national carrier.
The railway board chairman's comments come after the All India Railwaymen’s Federation, last week, asked the government for compensation at par with frontline workers for railwaymen who lost their lives while working during the coronavirus crisis.
The Indian Railways is one of the largest employers in the country with around 13 lakh employees and its workers' union had asked for Rs 50 lakh as compensation, in line with that announced for frontline workers and not Rs 25 lakh which is paid to them.

In the letter, Shiva Gopal Mishra, general secretary of the All India Railwaymenś Federation, said that while more than one lakh have been infected by the virus, 65,000 have recovered and joined their duties while 1,500 have lost their lives due to the coronavirus disease.
Sharma said that the Railways was concerned about the safety of all railwaymen and took all necessary steps to minimise their exposure.

On Sunday, Oxygen Express delivered a record 831 tonnes of LMO, a record for one single day. So far, 75 Oxygen Express´ have already completed their journey.
