Cleaning and disinfecting

"While most people shy away from high traffic places at a time when very little is known about Covid-19 virus. I saw cleaner disinfecting the venue in full PPE. I was moved in many ways to document it. Is this a glimpse of the future we will be living in? Also behind the mask and protective gear is a man probably with family and loved ones to feed. While I can choose to avoid places I deemed risky of infection, he can't because that is where he is required. I followed him quite a bit and took pictures from a distance as the disinfecting solution is rather choking. Once he stop for a short break I spoke with him briefly and thank him for what he is doing."--Contributed by Michael Abraham Chan, as part of the "Documenting COVID-19 in Singapore" collection community call.
