Subway trains in Seoul won't run after midnight starting next month.
The Seoul Metropolitan Government said on Friday that it decided to shorten their operating hours by an hour to run from 5:30 a.m. to midnight.
It said the step is necessary to ensure the safety of passengers and the effectiveness of disinfection work as the coronavirus epidemic drags on.
The workload of quarantine workers tasked with disinfecting stations and trains has increased significantly since the onset of the outbreak.
