Battle vs coronavirus: Hontiveros calls for regular disinfection, hand sanitizers in MRT, LRT
Keep our trains clean.
Senator Risa Hontiveros has called on transport authorities to conduct regular cleaning of the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems to keep the coronavirus from spreading in the capital.
Hontiveros said the commuter trains should be sanitized regularly. Hand sanitizers and alcohol dispensers should also be made available for railway passengers.
“Dahil hindi naman maiiwasan ang pagcommute, let’s make sure may regular disinfection, maayos ang mga CR, may running water & soap, and alcohol at hand sanitizer na readily accessible,” Hontiveros said.
“And always, let’s observe proper health etiquette,” she added.
The senator made the appeal after the country’s cases of coronavirus increased dramatically to 34 as of Tuesday.
