"If you rely on public transportation with no other options when an epidemic sweeps into town, public transportation is practically designed to amplify it. Where else will hundreds of strangers have to squeeze up against each other for minutes or hours every day? Even airplanes leave you some personal space. You don’t have to hold onto a rail on an airplane, either, one handled by God-knows-how-many sick people before you boarded the bus or train."
