CATCHING INFLUENZA ON THE PLANE

Author: DanPoynter  |  Category: Travel Tips

A new study of influenza and air travel shows that passengers seated in the two rows either in front of or behind someone with the flu are at greatly increased risk of getting the flu themselves ―almost half as likely to become infected as the people who are seated next to the sick passenger.

Exposure increase with the length of the flight.

A major problem is infected passengers who do not show signs of flu when boarding the plane.

    I just saw something about this on tv. It talked the same things you wrote about.

    I go to school in Canada and we just now are learning about this in our class.
    Thank you for helping me with the final part of my report.

    Thanks for the outline of tv stuff.
    I definitely think that cable television is going to go away.
    Or at a minimum have to change with the times.

    Internet tv is totally the wave of the future. As internet speeds get quicker, everyone will be
    watching their shows on sites like this.

    What do you know about this? I don’t think there’s a lot more to the concept
    I was just watching this on PBS today. They discussed the same
    things you wrote about.
