COVID Update Today by Doctor Mike Hansen (YouTube Video Playlist)

Catching COVID in an airplane is possible by inhaling the virus. And the regular face covering that you wear, such as a regular medical mask, won’t prevent you from inhaling the virus if it’s in the air close to you.

Airborne Transmission -

Here are my recommended items:
Regular Medical/Surgical Mask

Elastomeric Respirator Mask to Prevent Inhaling The Virus

Glasses/Goggles to Protect Your Eyes

Air Purifier for Home/Office

Pulse Oximeter to measure your Oxygen at Home

Most airlines are requiring passengers to wear masks. Some airlines are also taking other measures to minimize person to person interaction, such as not serving alcoholic beverages or are skipping snacks altogether. Most commercial flights these days have very clean cabin air. Airplanes accomplish this by the way they have their air intake system setup. Essentially, they have compressed air passing through the jet engines, with its temperature being super hot. That hot air is then cooled, and put under pressure (450) PSI. So between the initial hot temperatures and the high pressure, that makes the air in the cabin very sterile, as bacteria and viruses become destroyed in that process.

And the cabin air is exchanged every 3-4 minutes, which is actually better than offices and homes, which is typically every 5-12 minutes. Also, with newer generations of airplanes, they have high-efficiency particulate air filters, meaning HEPA filters, that filter the recirculated air. They can fish out particles as small as 0.3 microns, which is what an N95 respirator mask can do, as well as an elastomeric mask. Now some might say, well the virus is only about 0.1 microns in diameter or 100 nm. And this is true. But most of the virus in the air is going to exist within respiratory droplets. So the bottom line is, if the virus is in the air, most of it, about 95% of it, will be filtered out with these HEPA filters on the plane, and the same goes for respirator masks.

When someone is expelling respiratory droplets, the ones that more than 5-10 microns in size, those are the ones that are going to act like ballistics, and fall within 6-12 feet of them, IF… they are NOT wearing a mask. The respiratory droplets that are expelled are less than 5 microns, these are the ones that will stay suspended in the air. If someone is wearing a mask, it will drastically reduce the distance the size of that moist cloud, and the distance that moist cloud can travel, but it won’t be totally prevented.

So if no one sitting close to you, or if someone is sitting close to you but does not have the virus, no worries. But, of course, people are going to be close to you, and it's impossible to know who has the virus. And if that virus is in the air close to you, you’re going to breathe it in, unless….you do tip #1, which is, you wear an N95 respirator mask, or an elastomeric respirator. Both of these filter out at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. Right now the CDC recommends the public to not purchase and wear these N95 respirator masks, for one because they need to be reserved for health care workers. I don’t understand how they can be in limited supply this deep into a pandemic, but I digress. But what you can do is get yourself an elastomeric respirator. This is a reusable device with exchangeable cartridge filters. Like an N95 respirator, it also filters out at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. It fits tight against the user's face but is more comfortable than an N95.

How To Travel SAFELY During COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected everyone, everywhere! But as far as the economy is concerned the sector that has suffered the most is probably that of tourism. Since the outbreak began we have learned new ways to work, new ways shop, new ways to communicate, and even new ways to learn! Now that it seems clear that the pandemic will continue for at least another year, we need to find new ways to travel or Tourism will be another COVID Casualty.
Here are some tips on How To Travel Safely During COVID-19 Pandemic

1. Do your research
Just as you would normally check your travel itinerary before leaving, you should now check to see if your Transport and your lodgings have anti-covid measures in place. Covid measures should take precedence over others, for example, a room with a balcony that allows for air circulation is now more desirable than a fixed window with a sea view.

2. A to B
Make your trip as direct as possible, and if possible travel by car. Avoid public transport as much as possible. Avoid public rest stops and stop only when necessary, bring snacks and drinks with you to avoid queues, and wash or sanitize your hands before and after every stop.

3. The Great Outdoors
Respiratory virus transmission mainly occurs indoors, air circulation greatly diminishes the risk, so stay outdoors!. If you have to eat at a restaurant opt for one with outdoor seating and at least 2 meters between tables. Choose outdoor activities like walking and biking over indoor ones, it'll put you less at risk and it's better for you too!

4. Avoid flying
As with any public transport, airports are a risk mainly because of the amount of people that pass through them, If you can, avoid them. If you do have to fly, make sure your airline has anti-covid measures in place and that allows for social distancing. whilst in the airport, be aware of everything you touch and sanitize directly afterwards. Most commercial Aircraft have an air circulation system with approximately 50% outside air and 50% recirculated through HEPA filters, even so, a badly timed sneeze is all it takes so wear your mask onboard!

5. Packing
When preparing for your trip there are a few additional things you should add to your list. Hand sanitizer and hand soap, sanitizing hand wipes, water and snacks for the journey, and n95 face masks, bear in mind that an n95 mask is good for about 8 hours of continual use before becoming saturated and requiring a change, when packing, allow for this and the possibility that one may break or get damaged. when it comes to masks the more the merrier!

6. Be Ingenious!
If you're going to see family members try to avoid staying in their home, book lodgings nearby, or hire a caravan or motorhome or just get a tent and camp on their lawn. Remember that humanity's ability to overcome adversities comes from our adaptability and ingenuity, so rather than bury our heads till it all dies down let's use our heads to carry on living!

Travel safety during the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 is a global issue. The disease is in every country and nearly every city. That's why health experts do not recommend any nonessential travel at this time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says crowded travel settings, like airports, may increase chances of getting COVID-19 if there are other travelers with COVID-19 infection.

Dr. Abinash Virk, a Mayo Clinic infectious diseases physician, echoes that sentiment and says people should postpone travel if possible. However, if that's not an option, she says it's critical to be cautious about your potential exposures.

In this Q&A, Dr. Virk answers travel questions related to COVID-19 travel-related questions and offers some advice on how travelers can better protect themselves and others around them.

What to Expect When You Fly in the Future | WSJ

Air travel is full of opportunities for coronavirus transmission. Touchless check-in, plexiglass shields, temperature checks, back-to-front boarding and planes with empty middle seats are all now part of the flying experience, and the future may bring even more changes. Illustration: Alex Kuzoian
