The most dangerous area at the airport in terms of coronavirus infection can be considered the place of inspection. This opinion in a conversation with RIA Novosti was expressed by Mikhail Lebedev, a leading expert of the Center for Molecular Diagnostics of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor.
The specialist explained that it is difficult to keep a distance in this area due to the crowds. In addition, during the inspection, plastic trays are used, where passengers put their personal belongings and documents.
Lebedev advised travelers not to crowd in the line during the inspection and not to take off the mask, and after passing it, treat their hands with an antiseptic. According to the expert, this will significantly reduce the risk of contracting coronavirus.
In addition, he urged passengers not to walk around the airport building, including shops and cafes, unnecessarily. It is also recommended to check in online for flights.
We remind that earlier specialists explained how not to get infected with coronavirus through New Year’s gifts.
