What could possibly go wrong?

Of course, we will never hear about the number of people mowed down by system failure in such a teeming city. Perhaps they will link everything with 5G to make it doubly entertaining, or perhaps the lockdown will keep everyone off the streets anyway, and the only folks out there using taxis will be exchanging germs like there's no tomorrow (which sadly there may not be for some of them). At least with human taxi drivers, they can disinfect after each fare. Will the self-driving ones do the same, and if so, how much time will they be out of service while they are fumigated?
