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.

It appears that the driver had not actually gone back to work, so
there's little chance that he would have infected the underground.

Where was he for the five days before he had symptoms while he was

infecting others?

The Tube driver is self-isolating, and the train and depot he worked in is
being deep-cleaned, TfL said.
The driver said he had not worked in any public-facing job since returning
from Vietnam.

And so long as he had the plane to himself , didn't interact with anyone at
the airport, got a sealed taxi home from it and didn't go to the shops or
see any of his family between landing and symptoms appearing then we have
nothing to worry about.

This whole self isolation is bloody nonsense. But the time the symptoms appear
the person has been spreading the virus for almost a week already.
