Air Travel Linked To 59 Virus Infections


Recommended Posts

Saw the article when it first surfaced. Literally, quite an interesting and eye opening read when you listen to people discuss the untested Thai repatriation flights with those foreigners who did test negative before.  Now you can see how all should be tested before a flight. Especially since only 17% of the flight was booked and there was plenty of social distancing.

For those who can't get past the paywall...in summary: Irish government health officials linked 59 virus infections to a flight that arrived during the summer. 13 of the 49 passengers (flight only 17% full) tested + for the virus and 9 of them wore masks. They then went on to infect 46 more people throughout the country. They said it demonstrated the potential of air travel to spread the virus.

Thousands of passengers on commercial flights may have been exposed to coronavirus in 2020, CDC says

In a statement emailed to CNN, the CDC says it was made aware of 1,600 flights between January and August where a person on board may have had Covid-19, potentially exposing 10,900 people "within a 6-foot range for droplet transmission" to coronavirus.
