This is an extract from the weekly TfL newsletter:

Enhanced cleaning regime for public transport


Given one of their drivers has gone down with it I suspect its a bit too
late. Not that its much use against an airborn virus anyway but it probably
makes companies look like they're being proactive doing this sort of thing.

Your comments are nonsense.

So far the number of cases in London is minute and that is one driver
out of thousands. It is impossible to claim that the entire network is
already infected so hardly "a bit too late".


People are infections for about FIVE days BEFORE symptoms appear. He could
potentially have infected dozes or hundreds of people before he fell ill and
they in turn etc etc ... Do you understand how these sort of diseases spread?

As for "not much use against an airborne virus", the entire public
health advice is to wash hands and avoid touching the face because the
main route for transmission is touch.


You can also catch a cold or flu from touching something with the virus on.
Are you going to suggest they're not airborn diseases either?
