Redbridge borough in London has many cases of coronavirus, it is in third worst place in the UK for the number of current infections. The situation was so bad that it was decided to repaint some of its red buses black.
In addition to being all black these buses have messages written in yellow and red reminding everyone to be careful. The messages are like, “Keep your family safe”. Every day 2-3 people die of Covid in Redbridge. “The number of infections in Redbridge is increasing dramatically”.
London buses are traditionally red and seeing them black really makes us think we are in a truly extraordinary situation.
