Cleaning alone has a limited impact.

Governments and public transportation operators are spending significant amounts of money on Covid 19 cleaning. Some state governments introduced ‘covid cleaning squads’ and there are full time cleaners now employed on various public transportation networks.

However, cleaning on its own has a limited and short-term effect.  The surface is only clean until the next person touches it.  

Even with the cleaning teams and increased focus on regularity of cleaning, patronage numbers have reduced.  The community still has some fears about contracting Covid 19 via public transportation use.
