    The lack of smell/taste also presents itself a good opportunity to finally take shots of Malort with no repercussions.

        Quantifying the Incredibly Unlikely Aerosol Transmission of COVID on Airplanes



        If my covid test comes back negative maybe I'll actually fly again. If my sense of smell never returns that will open up a few more decent seat opportunities as well.
        Flew to/back from northern Sweden via Frankfurt last week and yesterday and while what's happening in the terminals varies by country, on the planes it's pretty standard protocol. Empty middle seats, face masks for everyone, minimal to non-existent beverage service unless you're business class.

        I'd fly again, but at this point there's essentially nowhere that you can go without needing to quarantine either on the way there or the way back.

        • Italian cyclist Fernando Gaviria tests positive at the Giro d'Italia.

          His second bout with the virus. Obviously, not immune.

            Please don't, based on stories like this. I don't know for a fact they are planted by the airline industry, I just know it.

            The death stick industry and the oil industry also spend millions on "studies." Purely coincidentally, the results always help their bottom lines.

            Please do not die for someone's share price.

              Rapid testing at all ports is the only way we're going to get the borders somewhat reopened by this winter. Negative at the departure point, you're good to board. Positive, you're not getting on that plane or ship. You get tested again upon arrival, right before immigration & customs. If positive you get pulled aside and follow the quarantine rules of whichever country or jurisdiction you've arrived in, with no exceptions.

              It will add time to the whole process and is annoying, but it's the only way to do it without a proven vaccine.

                  I feel like this story comes up every 6 weeks.

                  We've had almost 40 million global infections, right? To have a handful of confirmed re-infections shouldn't be surprising. Some people simply never develop memory antibodies for some or all viruses. And some get such a light initial infection that it doesn't fully trigger that immune response. We have no way of knowing.

                  So ultimately, we do not yet know for sure how long COVID immunity lasts for an average person, but it is absolutely there because that's how immune response works. COVID isn't some weird virus that defeats immunity.

                    I agree. They need to be everywhere. Even with their reduced accuracy compared to PCR tests (and the issue is with false negatives, not false positives), the ability to run them nonstop means you could be tested multiple times per week if necessary. Maybe you're sick and the first test misses it. But will the second? Or third?

                        Why not? You either take the test or you don't board (or aren't allowed to enter the country at the destination). This is just like the airlines' mask policies. In fact, it's actually easier to enforce.

                        • The 7-day moving average for deaths is the highest it has been since September 29th. Coincidentally the same average for daily cases began rising September 12th and hasn’t fallen since. Additionally active cases haven’t dropped since June 4th.

                            Because Americans don't do stuff like that. Hell Americans throw a fit about wearing said masks. The problem isnt the test it is us. (not me and you but our selfish ******* culture here)

                            Maybe if we tied it to terrorism...

                                It's standard to get tested at the airports in Germany when you return from a risk country. But you also have the option to do it for free regardless of where you went. You get results in fewer than 12 hours. Obviously, it takes 3-4-5 days for a positive test to show up after exposure so you get an additional test a few days later. Also for free. With a moderate quarantine in between the two tests, it's been successful so far.
