Beware: Now Is The Season For Air Traveling Viruses PDF Print E-mail

According to the Guardian, some of the most disease-infested surfaces are the trays on airport moving belts. When checking in, passengers dump unclean personal bags and other items on them. Especially in autumn and winter, they’re breeding areas for germs, especially those that cause colds and more severe pneumonia-related diseases.

Avoid the worst of the dangers by keeping yourself as clean as possible during the check-in and on-board seating processes. Carry throw-away medicated wipes with you, and use them on your hands and face as often as necessary. That includes when in airport and on-board toilets, getting seated on your flight, seatmate sneezers and touching busy areas and surfaces.
