    The C2 and C4 metro buses plying the route from Langley Transit Center to Wheaton are fully packed with workers between 5 am and 8am. They literally overflow with passengers and I suspect that would be a major cause of rising numbers in the Montgomery county area. Can the health authority do something about this please.
    You may wish to observe for yourselves.
