This picture released by the French Interior Ministry on March 26, 2020, shows a member of the Paris Emergency Medical Aid Service (SAMU) walking in a car of a medically adapted high-speed TGV train to transport 20 COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) patients from the hard-hit Alsace region to hospitals in the Pays de la Loire region, during the train's preparation on March 25, 2020, at the Gare de l'Est rail station in Paris, ahead of its departure for Strasbourg. France on March 26 carried out its first train evacuation of coronavirus patients from the hard-hit east of the country, which has registered over 1,300 hospital deaths in the fast-spiralling epidemic. The TGV evacuation, a first for Europe, saw the train's carriages transformed into intensive care units that can accommodate four patients and six medical personnel apiece. (Photo/Agencies)
