THE Corona virus pandemic (COVID-19) teaches every human being to keep the environment clean, but one of the most vulnerable places as a virus nest is the airport where people travel in and out of the country.
Quoted from Express.co.uk, the flight path at this time is not the right option for you who want to travel. However, if the atmosphere returns to normal and you can travel by plane, you need to pay attention to many things around you. You also need to be careful and avoid touching with any goods at the airport.
Aviation transportation is one of the culprits blamed for the spread of COVID-19 throughout the world. This is because the airport is very easy to spread the virus from the traveler.
Investigations from the University of Nottingham and the Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare in 2016 found the dirtiest place at the airport.
The research team conducted research at the Helsinki airport in Finland. They found dirty or high levels of viruses and bacteria to be found in items which were very often touched by travelers and airport staff.
For example; toilet door handles, elbow rests in airport lounges, escalator handles. However, the tray for checking traveler goods is the most common den for viruses. Most of the trays have proven to be positive as a medium for spreading the virus.
After the inspection process, the traveler will certainly touch many objects during the boarding process until the flight. No doubt if during this flight process you might accidentally touch your face. As a result the virus can directly infect your body.
The virus can last several days on inanimate objects. For example, in iron and plastic, the virus can last up to 48 hours. Even some types of viruses can last for several weeks.
Fortunately, the level and quality of cleanliness can be a solution to breaking the viral chain. Now people are even more aware of whatever they touch and are also careful about making contact. Now a number of flight activities will begin to be activated even though the COVID-19 pandemic is not over.
So how can a traveler start traveling again by plane? In the future, passengers of the plane at the airport must care and be aware of every little thing around them
Looking ahead, airport cleanliness must be improved. In addition passengers must also always provide hand sanitizers, as well as cabin crew must provide hand sanitizers for passengers to ward off the spread of the virus during the flight process. [business.com/photo special]
