After several nurses wearing full hazmat suits to treat ebola patients got the sickness, the mayor of NYC has re-assured us that it is “Hard to Contract”
On Friday, authorities again sought to assure an anxious public that the likelihood of Spencer spreading the virus while out and about was low.
“The MTA New York City Subway system is safe to ride,” the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates the nation’s largest public transit network, said in a statement, adding that the agency has “existing protocols for cleaning potentially infectious waste such as bodily fluids from anywhere” in the transit system.
Even Cuomo vowed to ride the subway on Friday.
“There is no cause for alarm,” de Blasio said. “Ebola is an extremely hard disease to contract. There is no reason for New Yorkers to change their daily routines in any way.”
