In a Facebook post on UP’s official page Thursday, it was reported that the UP National Engineering Center and the LRMC are developing “different disinfection equipment using UVC (ultraviolet-C) technology that would best serve the LRT-1 trains.”

Once they’ve come up with the equipment, they will work together to have it mass produced to help serve the entire LRT-1 line.

Metro Manila will be placed under general community quarantine starting June 1 wherein public transportation like the LRT-1 is allowed but under a limited capacity.

The development of a disinfection device will be helpful especially for a public train line as the country moves slowly toward the “new normal” phase wherein many of the restrictions under the lockdown will no longer be implemented.
