To date, 84 Metropolitan Transportation Authority employees have died from coronavirus complications, said MTA Chairman and CEO Patrick Foye during a Saturday afternoon radio interview on 1010 WINS.
Subway and bus ridership in the city are down 95%, Foye said.
Approximately 6,500 employees have returned to work, about 3,300 are currently quarantined and approximately 3,300 have tested positive for Covid-19.
Foye said that he has volunteered to get an antibody test through Stony Brook University to see if he can donate plasma. That test will take place sometime next week.
