    This is why you are not supposed to touch stuff then touch your face. You are supposed to frequently wash your hands. 

    It is your responsibility to protect yourself from getting the virus from touching things and transferring it from your hands to your face.

    Any disinfecting is better than none

    Same as your butt.  You use it more than once, so after every use it gets cleaned again.  Sure beats the once a year cleaning they "MIGHT"get.

    just don't touch anything

    It really doesn't matter, because "surfaces" aren't the main way that the virus spreads on the subway train.  And because "touching" isn't how the virus gets on surfaces.  The virus gets on surfaces from a person coughing, sneezing, or just breathing on the surface.  But the real problem is that you usually can't get a subway car to yourself, and at peak times, there are too many passengers to stay six feet apart, so you're all breathing the same air and can infect each other directly, without any surfaces being contaminated.

    If you're concerned about surfaces, don't touch anything.

    But if you don't want to get infected on the subway, don't take the subway.

    the point is, if they are sanitized enough, the chances of touching an infected surface decreases by that much.

    imagine if they didn't clean them at all. what would be the chances you'd get infected then?

    IDK did that person take a shower every day or just once a month, does that make a difference, not for coronavirus I mean in general

    Which is why YOU have to take all the precautions you can and don’t rely on anyone else to not spread it.
