If a patient is on a plane, will the other passengers infect? This is how the scholars investigated the matter

in #health5 years ago (edited)

You often see yourself with a cold after returning from a flight on the plane. If this happens to you, scientists have told you that they have determined how viruses circulate inside the plane and find that the likelihood of you catching a cold depends largely on how much you are moving inside the plane.

Based on different influenza patterns, a new study shows that a person has an 80% chance of getting the flu if he is sitting in the front or back row or between two seats on either side, otherwise the chance of infection will be reduced to 3%.

But this forces you to stay where you are, but when you move, you will be more vulnerable to friction and contact with a passenger or flight crew and someone may catch a cold, so if you want to stay well until the end of your flight, you must determine the amount of transport and walking while flying.

"We have found that the disease cannot be transmitted directly to an infected traveler outside an area of one meter," said mathematician Howard Weiss of the Georgia Institute of Technology. "There has been little research on this question before, in this case a team of ten people traveling by ten different continents, equipped with iPads to track passenger and crew movements."

The team recorded observations by taking 229 samples of air on board, looking for the effects of 18 common respiratory viruses.

One of the most important things to talk about is that scientists have not tracked the effect or spread of influenza, but instead have tracked the movements of passengers and crew, and then applied current models - how viruses spread - to this data.

The scientist "Weiss" adds: "The simulation provides us with strong evidence that if you stay out of the area that makes you injured, and remains clean, you are not likely to catch it during the flight."

This was supported by the results of those samples with 229 models, which showed that about 40% of travelers never ride the shortest transcontinental trips, while the second 40% of travelers rise at least once, while the remaining 20% Do they wake up twice or

The study also indicates that the probability of you getting more than twice depends on where you sit, and the percentage of this possibility will be twice as much if you sit in the corridor instead of sitting at the window, and at the same time, the average time that passengers spend away from a place Their seating is 5 minutes.

The research model also showed that none of the crew members with a common cold can transmit infection to an average (4.6) passengers per flight, and as we said earlier, the research used influenza patterns instead of tracking insect spread in the flight cabin.

The observations made by the research team are limited to short trips of up to 5 hours, and when mentioning short trips, this also means flights that are a small single-lane plane, and is known to be the best in reducing the spread of infection.

Despite everything previously said, there is still a very useful and rare insight into how the disease got to the plane's cabin, especially in how we moved.

According to the molecular biologist Edsel Maurice Salvaña from the University of the Philippines, who did not participate in this research: «Certainly we need to understand more about the cause of RKN 4A while traveling, and how cold and cough can spread, and the study team has planned the patient’s movements and One step further to test a plate that includes 18 respiratory viruses using a highly sensitive DNA test. »

So why does it seem that many of us receive the infection when they are on an air flight, is it pure imagination or is there really a rise in the level of disease for travelers?

He may have received the infection from the airport as suggested by the researchers conducting this study, or it could be from other continuous trips that take longer.

Of course, this requires more detailed studies before being able to know the truth about what is happening, but at the same time, your chance of receiving the infection may not be as high as you think, as you can reduce these risks by washing your hands, thus protecting the indirect transmission.

“We can eliminate the risk of infection indirectly inside the flight deck, if both passengers and the crew of the plane try to maintain personal hygiene and keep their hands out of their eyes and nose,” concluded “Weiss.”

Bid bot misuse, @steemflagrewards.

TL/DNR: You have received a downvote becauseyou used bidbots to boost your reward.

P.S. Tangofever tagged this first. I just like to make sure the facts are clearly presented, for whoever might be wondering about this post receiving downvotes.

You are a major cause of currency depreciation. I will leave the site because of you and I have not published it again

That is certainly not my intention @tag2017. For what it is worth, this was not personal in any way, as I do not know you. I bear you no ill will.

As with any of us, the route to obtaining support for your work is through engagement with others. Full stop. Period. There are many communities on our Steem blockchain. It would be in your best interest to find one or more which appeal to you and join in their efforts to build up the effort of others collectively.

You are, of course, free to do as you wish. However, after the EIP changes of HF 21 / 22, you are likely to find rewarding yourself will draw unwelcome attention to your posts. Your choice to make.

I think that this way it will not last long because there are restrictions that are not present in most sites and that is the reason for the currency decline and will continue to collapse. Most of my friends stopped publishing and promoting the site.

Please feel free to enlighten me @tag2017. What other sites allow you to reward yourself, at the expense of others, with "money" that doesn't belong to you?

I think it is a personal problem with me and there is no justice and you choose some and leave others and I think it is a way to bring down the site

You make reference to it being personal, when I have clearly told you it is not. I don't know you!

What I have done, joined by others, is in response to actions you have chosen to take and which we are encouraging you to stop. Full stop. Period. Don't reward yourself, leave that to others, and you won't have any further trouble.

As for this ...

"... you choose some and leave others ..."

... I can be sympathetic to why you might feel that way, but in a decentralized environment like this, there is no "central" authority to address it uniformly for everyone. It is up to us as individuals to do what we can. As time permits ... You have not been singled out for anything ...

As an attempt to provide you a bit of encouragement, I took a quick look at some of your posts. You are making an effort to create some good content. You just cannot escape that it is not easy to get established "in here," but it can be done with determination and hard work. Utilizing the info I provided you above. Many have.

I would encourage you to join them!

I have been working for years but now I feel very frustrated
