Study shows that risk of exposure to COVID-19 on board United planes is almost non-existent

United Airlines released a study by the North American Department of Defense through the US Transport Command (TRANSCOM), which shows that the risk of exposure to COVID-19 on a company flight is almost non-existent. This cabin airflow study is the most comprehensive to date, and shows that when a passenger is seated and wearing a mask, on average, only 0.003% of infected air particles can enter their breathing zone, even when all the airplane seats are occupied. United used its YouTube channel to publish a video that shows the effectiveness of wearing masks along with HEPA filters, to ensure that the interior of their aircraft is always safe and without posing a risk to passengers and crew.  https://passageirodeprimeira.com/estudo-comprova-que-risco-de-exposicao-a-covid-19-a-bordo-dos-avioes-da-united-e-quase-inexistente/
