Message to homeless: “Don’t Rain On My Parade!”
The data actually indicate that homeless passengers are more likely to contract Covid from infected MTA workers and passengers, than the other way around. Homeless people in NYC are typically free of the virus, that is, until they get forced into a city shelter.
As the MTA embarks on daily subway sterilizations, in response to conductor outrage over homeless persons on the trains, one can see the hysteria, absurdity, and contempt that has so characterized the response of NY officials to Covid, especially by those who claim to be guided by science. This doesn’t bode well for the countless new homeless that will emerge in the coming months, made so by the unsmart shut down of the City, along with the extreme social distancing policies of said officials.
