According tomedia reports, the new coronavirus pandemic is still a cause for concern. Although the virus has peaked in some major U.S. cities, it’s important to be vigilant and stick to social distance guidelines. As the country became more open, MLive interviewed four doctors with infectious disease and prevention backgrounds to provide people with a list of places and types of activities they should temporarily avoid.
The doctors point to five factors when talking about the risk sqm of a particular activity: whether the activity is indoors or outdoors, whether it is close to others, when it is exposed, the possibility of compliance, and the level of personal risk.
Outdoor activities are generally safer than indoors, they point out, because viruses become less concentrated outdoors and do not circulate like indoors.
In addition, doctors collected a list of 36 recreational activities and ranked them according to the risks associated with the new coronavirus. There is no doubt that the most dangerous activity is drinking in the bar. In addition to the often crowded bars, people are less likely to follow safety guidelines when they are drunk. One doctor noted that the bar represents a 10/10 risk of infection.
Other venues that doctors warned to avoid include large concerts, stadiums, stadiums and amusement parks. In fact, any densely populated outdoor or indoor venue can become a hotbed of new coronavirus transmission.
One frequently asked question is about flight safety. To this end, the aircraft was given an infection risk rating of 5/10. In fact, the doctors did not agree on this issue:
There are differing opinions about the safety of flying during a pandemic — two experts call it medium risk, one as low risk and the other as high risk.
There is still much to be asked about what precautions might become the standard for airlines.
