The agency nixed the closures as unworkable, but it’s progress of a sort: The mayor had been denying the system was “out of control.” But it’s not enough, as City Hall still refuses to embrace tough love. Even now, mass transit is key to keeping the city running. MTA workers, cops, doctors, nurses (the very people needed to fight the virus and care for the sick) depend on it. Yet the subways are now filthy, disgusting, unsanitary mobile shelters with passed-out derelicts, druggies and the mentally ill sprawled out on seats and floors and using trains as toilets. The disease risk is huge.
