Planning to fly during the pandemic? If yes, then here’s some good news for you!
According to an expert analysis, despite the known risks of crowded, enclosed spaces, aircrafts have not been the sites of so-called superspreading Coronavirus so far.
Let us help you with the flight bookings:
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), “Most viruses don’t spread easily on flights because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes.”
Here’s what experts say on Air travel and its safety:
Arnold Barnett, a professor of management science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has been trying to quantify the odds of catching COVID-19 from flying.
He has factored in a bunch of variables, including the odds of being seated near someone in the infectious stage of the disease, and the odds that the protection of masks will fail.
He has accounted for the way air is constantly renewed inside an airplane, which experts say makes it very unlikely you’ll contract the disease from people who aren’t in your immediate vicinity.
According to Barnett, “We have about a 1/4300 chance of getting the coronavirus on a full 2-hour-flight — that is, about 1 in 4300 passengers will pick up the virus. The odds of getting the virus are about half that, 1/7700, if airlines leave the middle seat empty.”
A biology professor Erin Bromage from the University of Massachusetts says, “the air exchange system in planes is better than in hospitals, with the air in the cabin being completely replaced 30 times every hour.”
So, with all the precautionary measures, flying seems to be the safest option during these difficult times for transportation.
Have a safe and happy Journey!
