Evacuating COVID-19 patients in France

A medical worker watches from the platform of the Gare d'Austerlitz train station on Wednesday in Paris through the window of a medicalized TGV high speed train before its departure to evacuate patients infected with the COVID-19 from Paris' region hospitals to other hospitals in the western France Brittany region where the outbreak has been limited so far. France has been on lockdown since March 17 in a bid to limit the contagion caused by the novel coronavirus, a situation it has extended until at least April 15.
