Flying is still a crap-shoot

A new study from the CDC in the US has come up with a pretty simple conclusion about flying: When flying, you are much less likely to get infected with coronavirus if the middle seat is empty.

Put another way, COVID-19 is more likely when all seats are occupied on a plane.

Will that stop airlines from selling that middle seat?


So as much as it hurts to wait a bit longer, if you want to stay safe, it would be wise to avoid flying until this pandemic is much better controlled.
