1. Air travel
- Risk level: Extremely high
If it’s not an urgent situation, you should definitely avoid air travel—at least until a vaccine will actually be authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Airports are one of the riskiest places when it comes to exposing yourself to the coronavirus.
But why are airports COVID-19 hotspots? The answer is quite simple: People have a tendency to forgot about social distancing and other safety measures such as using a disinfectant while in airports because they focus their attention on something else like going to the security checks faster to catch their flights.
