Immunity Passport: What’s In It?

Posted by Holly Hou on 11/13/20 10:52 AM

As the global economy learns to adapt through a continuing pandemic, countries are easing their travel restrictions as people start to venture from their quarantine nests. Among the countries that are taking action is Chile, who is rolling out “release certificates” for recovered COVID-19 patients. Patients carrying these certifications are considered “immune” and show a low risk of transmitting the virus, leaving them exempt from all types of quarantine or local restrictions. Meanwhile, the UK, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Israel, Colombia, Argentina, Estonia, and the US are considering following Chile’s footsteps and looking forward to using a digital immunity passport as well.

Is it Safe to Fly?

Posted by Holly Hou on 9/10/20 1:44 AM

Air travel today looks vastly different from what it was before. The fear of  COVID-19 transmission has significantly reduced the demand for air travel, causing airlines to cut back their flights. We’ve all been adapting to the new normal over the past several months and travel is now slowly coming back. 

 

While traveling by plane during this time may seem scarier than ever before, according to a recent study, the risk of getting infected on the plane is actually quite low. On a full flight, the odds of infection are just 1 in 4,300, and the odds lower to 1 in 7,700 if the airline has adopted the middle seat open policy. Note that current flights are also generally not full due to low demand in travel.
