It is actually the physical contact with another person that carries the potential risk of coronavirus infection on flights as the virus can’t stand alone for long hours on seats or armrests.

Just wearing masks or rubber gloves inside the flight is not enough. In fact, masks and gloves spread more bugs rather than restricting their flow. Thus, washing hands frequently is the only best way to avoid the coronavirus, as per David Powell, a physician and medical adviser to the International Air Transport Association.

There is a low risk of catching a serious infection on a flight as the air supply inside an aircraft is different from what is used in a movie theater or inside the building of an office. The aircraft uses a blend of fresh air and recirculated air.

Before becoming a full-fledged physician, taking USMLE Step 1 Exam is very importnat step.

The recirculated air is then passed through the same type of filters that are used in operating theaters. Thus, the air supply inside the aircraft is 99.97% free of bacteria or viruses. So the transmission of the infection is not because of the supplied air, but it is a result of the physical contact with another person.
