Southwest reduces aircraft cleaning between flights, focusing on tray tables over seat belts

Aggiunto
 
Southwest Airlines cut back on its cleaning procedures as the Dallas-based airline returns to standard turnaround times. According to a Southwest memo to flight attendants obtained by USA TODAY, starting Aug. 1, the between-flight cleaning focused on high-touch areas such as the lavatories and tray tables, which are disinfected before each takeoff (top, bottom and latch of each table). "These are the most important areas to clean between each flight as they are prone to contamination from… (www.usatoday.com) Altro...

For some reason I am reminded of a bar I frequented in my youth where we would say they cleaned the bathrooms once a year whether they needed it or not

or lack thereof. I never saw anyone cleaning a tray table - except me with wet ones.

- The latest science says contaminated surfaces aren't a dominant risk consideration ; What matters is whether the lungs of your fellow passenger(s) are shedding coronavirus second by second, breath by breath during a multi-hour journey. Even a successful temperature scan will not identify an asymptomatic carrier. Interestingly, the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles football team just tested covid positive August 3, although he claims he has no symptoms (yet)

MANY PEOPLE ARE ASYMPTOMATIC...SPORTS TEAMS FROM PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL TO COLLEGE VARSITY ARE NOW GETTING BACK POSITIVE TESTS FOR THE CORONA VIRUS..YES,IT HAS BEEN STUDIED AND SHOWNN THE VIRUS SPREADS WITH "DROPLETS" FROM COUGHS,SNEEZES AND EVEN TALKING OR SINGING..IT HAS ALSO BEEN DISCOVERED THE VIRUS IN DROPLENTS CAN "HANG" IN THE AIR FOR A PERIOD OF TIME AND NOT FALL ONTO SURFACES..WE STILL NEED TO BE VIGILANT WITH WEARING MASKS,WASHING HANDS AND YES,SANITIZING..I GUESS WHAT SOUTHWEST SHOULD DO NOW IS NOT ONLY HAND OUT MASKS,BUT GIVE PEOPLE PACKETS OF SANI WIPES TO WIPE DOWN THEIR OWN SEATS AND SEATBELTS..WHAT THEY ARE SAYING IS TIME CONSTRAINTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN KEEPING PASSENGERS SAFE..I MEAN, FOR GOSH SAKES,A SPRAY CAN OF LYSOL,A CLEAN CLOTH,AND MAYBE 2 OR 3 PEOPLE TO WPEE DOWN SEAT BELTS AND ARMRESTS WOULD NOT TAKE MORE TIME THAN THE USUAL "QUICK CLEAN" WHERE THEY JUST PICK UP GARBAGE AND GO..THIS IS A MISTAKE...

I live in Canada and a company is developing a pocket sized instant COVID tester which can give results in less than a minute. Just using saliva. Can detect the virus even if you are 100% asymptomatic. THe goal is to have it operational by Oct. Could be a game changer unless the mainstream media and Bill Gates block it.

There is NO one minute saliva based test anywhere. Ben Gurion University IS working on a one minute test that uses a breath test or throat and nose swab, such as are already currently used for other COVID-19 tests.

This is happening in ISRAEL, NOT Canada you lying POS. It's NOT pocket-sized, it's a machine that has to have internet connectivity to reach the cloud-based servers that do the actual work.

Their newly developed method is based on the change in the resonance in the THz spectral range shown by the coronavirus through a THz spectroscopy performed on the device.

Bill Gates has donated BILLIONS of dollars to health care around the world and saved MILLIONS of lives. The best you've done is be the love child of your brother dad and sister mom.

Shove your conspiracy theories up your ass.

Gates has made a few comments that give pause regarding the Chinese Communists, indirectly giving aid and succour to the violent marxist blm and antifa criminals (clearly self-avowed).

Gates is one of the world's biggest philanthropists but public education, the entity that spawned all the ignorant brain-washed leftism extant is a poor choice of his largesse.

Only full-throated condemnation of ANY globalist/anarchic/leftist bent will do in these dangerous times.

And can be used by airlines at security so everybody who gets on a plane is 100% COVID negative. Could be what the airline industry desperately needs and getting people BACK TO WORK....

This whole mess was created to bring the world back to no fossil fuels.
