Pakistan Railway medical officer Dr. Abdula Samad tells the Associated Press news agency the sleeper and business class cars they converted can each hold about 36 patients, and they also can be adapted for isolation.

The railway company says overall it has converted 220 coaches with a total capacity of as many as 2,000 hospital beds.
