Can mere touch transmit COVID-19 to another person? Bombay High Court asks Expert Committee formed by Civil Aviation Ministry
In a May 26 meeting, the committee had suggested that viral transmission on flights could be prevented if passengers occupying middle seats wore protective suits/gown to minimise transmission through inadvertent touch.
The Bombay High Court on Thursday sought clarification from an Expert Committee created to review and strengthen safe air travel protocols as to whether the mere touch of a person carrying COVID-19 virus could transmit the virus to a person so touched. (Deven Yogesh Kanani v DGCA and Ors)
