Laws of motion: New travel safety norms needed when COVID-19 lockdown ends
As the battle against Covid-19 is anticipated to be a long one, public transport services may have to resume, at least, in a limited manner. To begin with, curtailed and limited services plying between restricted origin and destination points may have to be resumed by domestic airways, railways, intercity and intracity public buses and metro railways. Transport operators should start gearing up to accomplishing what may seem like a Herculean task of arranging basic screening facilities for the safety of passengers in close coordination with the state governments. They should prepare themselves well to make such arrangements as required before the lockdown is lifted either partially or fully.
