“The virus is going back and forth, back and forth in dirty trains with people, homeless, and everybody with no masks on. There’s a problem here,” Hicks said.

Hicks said the trains have been taken over by the homeless. Most aren’t wearing masks and many have no access to hand sanitizer or soap. He said he’s worried the virus could be festering without proper cleaning.

“You look at the videos of Times Square. It’s empty outside. You look at the videos all over the place, it’s empty because everybody’s underground. There’s a whole city of people underground,” Hicks said.
