NEW YORK SUBWAYS SHUTDOWN OVERNIGHT FOR DISINFECTING
Nyc's subway network went empty on Weds early time of the day as a result of a decision to close down the daily almost around-the-clock station sanitation operation.
The services, which had been operating on a shortened timetable since emergency order due to the corona virus, would now be halted at one in the morn. Around five a.m. Every single day.
Many stations do not even have a gate which implies that there is no way to secure them safely. So a thousand police at almost three hundred stations have guarded it at night so no citizens could enter inside.
MTA staff cleansing vehicles at the ninety-sixth Street Qstation, as they did midnight at all four hundred and seventy-two stations. They are even washing trains & sweeping the entire day.

Subways services will be shut down every night to carry out of disinfection process
To ensure proper disinfection so as to prevent spread of coronavirus the New York City subways will be shut down for four hours every night to disinfect every single car on every single train in its fleet. The subway stations will be closed between 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. every day from May 6 and this may continue until the virus is no longer a threat said MTA. The agency though did not provide an exact date to end this ago it said Governor Cuomo may allow it once 24-hour services are implemented. To compensate for this cancellation of the transport system, MTA will be adding 334 buses, 1168 trips and 37 routes with the bus fare being free.
In the case of workers who cannot depend solely on bus ride alone will be offered with a free ride to home via MTA's partnership with hire care services. The wing responsible for cleaning the subways will be divided into three teams and 500
employees will be assigned to clean each subway car every day. The following are the details on division of labour force to carry out the tasks. Daytime Terminal Car Cleaning: Once a train reaches its final destination the crews will be removing trash, clean spills and biohazards, and spot clean seats, floors, and other surfaces. Also, the trains will be disinfected at terminals during specified times of the day. Overnight Yard Cleaning: Trains that will be in service during daytime and out of service during night time will be receiving a more intense cleaning which includes removal of garbage and graffiti, clean spills and biohazards, mop floors, clean seats cleaning, and disinfect surfaces. Overnight Terminal Car Cleaning: Trains that remain in service at night will receive cleaning that is identical to the yard cleaning except at terminal stations.
The MTA police force and NYPD will be working together to ensure clearance of subway stations every night "to make sure their critical work goes on uninterrupted." Though the increase in cost for overnight staffing is not announced, MTA Chairman Patrick Foye said costs to staff overnight cleaning operations would run hundreds of millions over budget. Transport Workers Union Local 100 President Tony Utano said "exactly the aggressive and dramatic action we wanted to safeguard transit workers worried they could contract the virus from people camped out in the system." The MTA said apart from the time during 9/11 attacks and strikes where the services were cancelled only for a day this is the first time that services are partially or completely shut down due to a health-related situation.
