Low risk of COVID-19 infections on airplanes, early military study suggests | Connecting Vets Radio

An early military study analyzed the spread of particulates within commercial aircraft, suggesting that transmission risk is low if passengers wear masks. It was conducted by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and United Airlines along with help from Zeteo Tech Inc. “The favorable results are attributable to a combination of high air exchange rates, coupled with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration recirculation systems and the downward airflow ventilation design which results in rapid dilution and purging of the disseminated aerosol particles,” said Vice Adm. Dee Mewbourne, the deputy commander of TRANSCOM.
