A recent Harvard report provided new data regarding safe air travel.
Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, with the help of Airlines for America, conducted a unique experiment to assess the risk associated with COVID-19 on airplanes.
The study determined that there is an extremely low risk of contracting COVID-19 on an airplane when travelers utilize a mask. Many factors went into the designation, including the renewal of cabin air every two minutes, hospital-grade filters, airflow from seat to seat, and how the plane is disinfected between flights.
While nothing is completely risk-free, this report increases confidence in air travel during the pandemic.
