New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday ordered that all New York City subway cars be cleaned every night by Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers to ensure the safety of essential personnel during the coronavirus pandemic.
Any essential worker who shows up and gets on a train should know that that train was disinfected the night before, Cuomo told reporters at his daily coronavirus press briefing.
Letting them endanger their own life and endanger the lives of others is not helping anyone, Cuomo said.
The governor said that he wants the MTA to present to him a plan for the nightly cleanings by Thursday.
Its realistic. Its an essential. How realistic is it? Whats the alternative?" Cuomo said when asked if the state would provide funding to the MTA for the cleaning.
He also commented on reports of the deteriorating state of subway cars during the crisis as the city has allowed homeless people to stay on the cars with their belongings.
"No one wants to live their lives on a subway train," Cuomo said. "We have a higher obligation as a society than to say 'OK, you can sleep in a subway car.'"

And he accuses President Dr. Trump of not acting quickly enough???
Clearly some stoopid sh!t I wont have to worry about living out here in fly over country.
WASH YOUR HANDS, NYC!!!!
He’s acting late, again
Every night ... wow, that will help.
Maybe Cuomo will grab a bucket and a mop and do something useful.
He’s just now getting around to that???
HazMat suits for all!
In the war againt NY subway germs O’m betting on the germs. They’ll probably even keep some of the cleaners as war brides.
3 months too late.
After 120 years? Why start now?
So a month and a half into the murdering of new york city, they are just now deciding they should clean the cars that are spreading all the infection? I guess he’s going to blame the people who use the cars for not being clean enough?
That should have been happening before.
Well did he ever return
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned.
He may ride forever neath the streets of (NY)
He’s the man who never returned.
It would be much easier to disinfect the NYC Sanctuary Subway if the 1.2 million illegals living in NYC would go back to their s*hole homeland.
Cuomo needs to get his face sanitized
That was my thought - like the pancake/waffle restaurants that clean their tables every night. No, thank you.
Is the governor stepping on the mayor’s toes?? Isn’t it the mayor’s responsibility to issue such orders??
Besides, it seems to me that cleaning subways as described would be daily routine already!
