Infectious disease experts contradict the airline industry facts.
they wouldn't fly.
Also check the Government of Canada website that gives info on flights that had passengers with Covid.
It gives data on Domestic and International flights, obvious pre-flight screening isn't working.
Why would a sane individual fly to a location that has more covid than the one they left.

You appear overcome and helpless with fear, amigo.

Zihuatanejo has more Covid-19 than where you are? Then stay there and freeze your tail off cowering indoors and ordering food delivered to your home. I for one am infinitely thankful to be right where I am. I've been to Acapulco at least half a dozen times or more this year by bus and taxi, and I won't hesitate to go again by either means because I trust myself to be able to follow simple basic rules of hygiene, as millions of other people do daily that have to travel by whatever means they have available.

I'm in the "at risk" group, yet I wouldn't hesitate to fly south to a warm tropical climate if I were a snowbird. It's a simple matter to follow BASIC RULES OF HYGIENE by wearing a mask and washing hands after touching things other people have touched.

The air filtration systems aboard modern aircraft is among the most sophisticated available, and the flow of air is designed so as not to circulate randomly around inside the cabin but to maintain a steady stream of filtration, adding to the safety of passengers. Since everyone is required to wear a facemask you shouldn't have to worry about other passengers sneezing or coughing on you, which along with touching infected services and touching one's face afterwards is usually how people get infected with any virus or bacteria aboard an aircraft.

But don't take my word for it. Inform yourself:
What Are HEPA Filters? Will They Keep Me Safe When Flying?

Here we go with the criticisms for my "condescending" and "cavalier" attitude again. Fuggem!

Says the guy who never leaves downtown Z and gets his food delivered! :stirpot:
