A bus driver in Detroit, who had complained about a passenger coughing without covering her mouth and feared people were not taking the novel coronavirus pandemic seriously, has died after contracting the virus, officials said. "I feel violated", he said.

The president of the union for Detroit's Department of Transportation bus drivers says nearly 20% of their drivers are in quarantine for possible COVID-19 exposure.

Hargrove said drivers are 'public workers doing our job, trying to make an honest living, take care of our families'.

DDOT is now operating their buses on a reduced schedule because of the coronavirus and the measures put into place to stop the spread.

In the days leading up to the incident, it was apparent that Hargrove understood the severity of the coronavirus, posting to his social media accounts about its effect on Detroit and the rest of the country. Mayor Mike Duggan told the AP that "everybody in America" should view Hargrove's video.

While there's no way of knowing whether Hargrove transmitted the illness from the passenger referenced in his video or if he was infected in another way, the bus driver's death and his foreboding words have rocked Detroit, one of the nation's covid-19 hot spots. "Ya'll need to take this serious".

Mayor Duggan said that when he heard bus drivers went on strike on March 17 because they felt unsafe, he implemented new measures, including only allowing people to get on from the back doors and no longer collecting bus fares. "There was about eight or nine people on the bus that stood there as she coughed and never covered up her mouth", Hargrove said. "He knew his life was being put in jeopardy ... by someone who didn't take this seriously and now he's gone". "Not the city, not the mayor, not the department, not the state of MI, not the government, nobody, not the president", Hargrove said.

On March 23, two days after the incident, he wrote about how he was self-quarantined for two weeks due to exposure to covid-19.

In a Thursday news conference, Duggan commended Hargrove for his service to the city.

The mayor, however, still had his mind on Hargrove. "Utterly don't give a f--, excuse my language", Hargrove said in the 8-minute video. Tolbert says the drivers are undergoing the new quick tests at the testing site at the Michigan State Fairgrounds in Detroit. He pleaded to his friends to cover up their face and wear gloves if they had to go out. "I'm out of here, y'all".
