Experts Swabbed Stations And Trains For Covid 19 And This Is What They Found

No traces of coronavirus were found in tests at four major railway stations and on intercity train services, Network Rail has said.

Experts swabbed the places passengers touch most regularly such as escalator handles, ticket machines and benches, and also took hour-long air samples.

Two rounds of testing were carried out at London Euston, Birmingham New Street, Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Piccadilly station in January and then again in June.

Tests were also repeated on trains running between the stations. Examination of the results by Imperial College London found no Covid-19 contamination of any surface, or airborne particles of the virus.
