Sometimes I wonder if anyone read the article. It said that this study was commissioned by the US Military, and had nothing to do with the airlines. It said that the study reported nothing about airports or ground transportation. It said that smaller planes have similar ventilation, filtration, and circulation systems, so the overall risk should be about the same as the results from the bigger planes. It said that, given the circulation systems, aerosol transmissions appear to be very low and pose little risk, especially if everyone is wearing a mask. Now you may not want to believe any part of the study, but their methodology seems pretty thorough to me. I was reassured, and I was skeptical from the start. But I also happen to be in a high risk category, and I'm still not comfortable in a crushing airport environment.
