The subway trains in New York City have run overnight for 115 years without being shutdown and cleaned, according to CBS News. They reported this was the first time they've ever actually been closed off and it was all so they can be disinfected amid the outbreak.
CBS reported that "service was curtailed in late March, but is now being stopped entirely from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. each day. It's the first time in 115 years service hasn't been 24/7 except in times of emergency, and Governor Andrew Cuomo says there's no way to know when service will return to normal, notes CBS New York."
This makes many people wonder if the trains were cleaned at all during normal hours. One has to imagine that answer would be yes, however, at this time, I do not have the correct answer for that question. I can only hope that they clean their trains more often and that passengers practice good hygiene.sponsor
