Delta Air Lines: Pre-flight COVID testing will reduce risk of infection

    Delta Air Lines reported (08-Sep-2021) the risk of exposure to COVID-19 while travelling after all passengers test negative 72 hours in advance of flying is less than 0.1%. This is according to a study on Delta‘s COVID-tested flight corridors between New York-JFKAtlanta and Rome.
