Big Apple residents who can’t work from home amid the coronavirus pandemic and still have to commute to their jobs via subways and buses say they’re “terrified” for their health and safety.

“I’m pregnant and I still have to take the train to work. I’m really, really scared for myself and my [unborn] baby,” Manhattan grocery store worker Taylor Sanchez, 23, said Wednesday.

Sanchez said that during her commute from Queens by bus and then on the E or F line to the W. 23rd Street station, she avoids sitting close to people. When she gets home after a day’s work, she sanitizes “everything,” including, “my bag, my phone, my headphones.”

“I take a shower and I wash the clothes I was wearing,” she said.

Speaking as she rubbed her belly, Sanchez added, “I’m terrified. I fear for the baby.”

As an influx of city-goers adapt to working from home due to the spread of the potentially deadly bug, teacher Amina Mouhammed said she is still commuting to her job in Rego Park, Queens by bus and the R train.

“It makes me nervous,” Mouhammed said. “Every day the number [of confirmed coronavirus cases] is going up and up. It’s just skyrocketing.”

Mouhammed said she keeps hand sanitizer and a facial mask on her.

“It’s not possible to stay three to six feet away from people while you are on the train, but I still try. You have to be careful,” she said.

A 32-year-old Harlem resident said she has been commuting daily from her home to Penn Station on the 2 and 3 train line to get to her sales job at Adjmi Apparel.

“It’s terrifying,” the worker, who did not want to be named, said. “You can’t help but touch surfaces. Some people do not have respect for your own personal space.”

The woman said the subways are noticeably less crowded, but she’s still shocked at the amount of people she witnesses “not wearing gloves or holding the bars with no regard.”

In addition to wearing gloves daily, the sales rep said uses “lots” of hand sanitizer and sprays herself down with disinfectant when she gets home from work.

“I definitely fear for my health,” she said. “Every day is a huge risk … it’s a gamble because I could have [coronavirus], spread it, or I could get it while commuting these days.”

Nicole Francis, a home health aide, who lives in Queens and commutes to Brooklyn by way of the E, D and R lines said she’s taking all the precautions she can by wearing gloves, a face mask and keeping alcohol wipes in her pocket on the subway.

“I have to protect myself, my family and my patient,” Francis, mom of two, said. “Of course I’m scared … this virus is spreading like wildfire … I am not taking any chances.”

Even MTA workers are fearful over the highly-transmissible virus.

The agency says that trains and buses are being cleaned every 72 hours, and commonly-touched station surfaces — “like turnstiles, ticket machines, and handrails” — twice per day.

The MTA said Monday that based on its most recent daily reports, ridership has plummeted approximately 60 percent on the subways and 49 percent on buses.

A spokesman for the transit agency, Ken Lovett, said Wednesday that “the trend is continuing.”

“It [ridership] was lower today,” said Lovett.
