Leading researcher, center of epidemiology and Microbiology them. Gamalei Victor Larichev estimated the risk of Contracting respiratory infection on the plane. He told this in an interview with radio station “Moscow speaking”.

“Well, what the who (world health organization) went on the wearing of masks by all, always. We’re not going to wear them for life, but something we need to do, in aircraft, for example. Or something to do with the ventilation in the aircraft, or in masks to fly. This is the real route of infection, especially respiratory infections,” — said Larichev.

He also noted that earlier given who recommendations, according to which the result of the coronavirus masks should have been worn only infected, was wrong. In his opinion, the recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor, which ordered “always masks hung all”, was more correct. “From what we will, for example, in the plane to fly in disguise, will not be worse”, — concluded the epidemiologist.
