Scientists were capable of stopping the spread of viruses but its too late

In America on March 14,1977 a plane carrying 53 passenger had one lady infected with flu. Due to technical snag, the plane was stopped for two hours and due to the failure of ventilation system, it was found that those who were traveling in the plane got infected within three days. The story was published in the leading daily newspaper of America, The Washington Post.

A group of researchers used ultra violate light for disinfecting the passengers was useful. The Federal Aviation Administration and major manufacturers have long been aware of the risk of diseases spreading on flights and have sponsored research seeking improvements.

But there are some other views also “To be honest, airplanes are not designed to prevent infectious-disease transmission,” said Chen, who was co-director of the FAA-funded Airliner Cabin Environment Research center from 2004 to 2010. “They’re not designed to do the job.”
