swine flu and air travel
15th January, 2008
I just copied this from the AirAsia site.Maybe it will be of help to anyone who is worried about flying during this outbreak.
Some airlines are refusing to carry people who so much as sneeze!
This is a statement from the World Health Organisation and kind of proves that the airlines are over-reacting to the general hysteria regarding this 'flu'
“Limiting travel and imposing travel restrictions would have very little effect on stopping the virus from spreading, but would be highly disruptive to the global community. … Scientific research based on mathematical modelling indicates that restricting travel will be of limited or no benefit in stopping the spread of disease. Historical records of previous influenza pandemics, as well as experience with SARS, have validated this point.” – WHO
