Subway stations reopen little by little in Argentina’s capital

Buenos Aires, Aug 17 (Prensa Latina) One year and five months after Covid-19 broke out in Argentina, several metro stations in Buenos Aires were fitted out on Tuesday, after the restriction measures imposed on public transportation due to the pandemic ceased.

Although in these times the subte, as this means of transportation is locally known, continued to transfer Buenos Aires citizens, mostly to the considered essential workers, several stations of the six available lines were limited and others were completely closed.

Since this Tuesday, 11 subway stations have reopened, and 80 of 90 stations were ready, in very busy stops such as Piedras and Rio de Janeiro in Line A, Tronador and Echeverria in Line B, and Cordoba and Inclan in Line H, among others. Ten others that are still closed are waiting to reopen.

This new scheme allows to respond to the expected demand with the return to face-to-face classes at universities and ease activities within the framework of the Government’s plan for the return to normal life, the source stated.

The company stated in a communique that all protocols to fight the spread of Covid-19 are still in force as well as take care of users, workers and network contractors. Reinforcing cleaning and disinfection of stations and high contact surfaces must continue.
