A New York City Uber driver has died from Coronavirus after he picked up an infected passenger, according to an email from the Independent Drivers Guild (IDG)

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Anil Subba and send our condolences to his family who depended on him and could not even be with him in his final days due to this cruel virus,” IDG spokeswoman Moira Muntz said. “Poor federal screening and quarantine procedures at the airports put Uber, Lyft, and taxi drivers at unnecessary risk. The government was telling returning travelers to go home and self-quarantine but wasn’t providing a safe way to get them home.”

Muntz called on the government and ride-hailing companies to do more to protect ride-hailing drivers and to deliver emergency financial compensation.
