The manager of a New York apartment building told how he monitors cleanliness and order in a six-story building during the coronavirus pandemic. This is stated in the video of the Voice of America edition in Facebook.
Gustavo Peña is the manager of 2160 in New York. His task is to keep order in the building. In quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, he is also responsible for the safety of residents. To do this, he must maintain ideal cleanliness inside the building: disinfect all door handles, railings, elevator buttons and approaches to it and other surfaces. “We've done it all before, but now we also have to disinfect everything twice a day,” he explained.
Since Peña himself can touch surfaces on which the virus can be, during work he protects himself with a mask and gloves.
He said that today one patient lives in this house, but he has not yet been officially confirmed the diagnosis of coronavirus. This person is in quarantine, the manager added. The remaining residents try to keep their distance and also stay at home.

When asked what Peña would have done first after the quarantine, he replied that he would see his grandchildren. “My granddaughter is due to graduate from school this year. She should have her graduation soon. I would like to go to her graduation and see how she is given a diploma, '' he said, and added that he was very much looking forward to the end of quarantine. “I really look forward to the virus going away and we can return to our normal life.”
