More than 2M Americans ignored CDC plea against flying ahead of Thanksgiving

More than 2M people traveled by plane in the US this weekend ahead of Thanksgiving — despite health officials urging Americans to nix their holiday travel plans due to the pandemic. There were 1,019,836 passengers who passed through airport security checkpoints Friday, followed by 984,369 on Saturday. The figure was 42% of the number of travelers who were screened last year on the same dates.

Didn't they just say not long ago that sitting in close proximity to one another in a plane was completely safe?

Everyone..hide in your hidey holes until you're mentally jll, physically unfit, and destitute because the government says so. Btw, 90% of all infections are spread by your hands.

2 million, how many would usually travel 🤔 I bet it is quadruple that! 2 million is a relative drop in the ocean of the US population. It is easy to assume that all of these travellers are all ignorant to the covid and are spreading it all over the country but that will not be the entire case. The airports and flight companies are all doing their bit to prevent the spread and so are most people,... Most people, just not all..

Whenever I read stories like this I remember that while we can flatten the curve, We can't stop the spread of the virus completely. Some people have to go on with their lives and can't wait for a vaccine to come. Heck covid-19 force me to fly back to my home state this summer because it was no longer economicly viable to stay where I was at when the lockdowns first hit. Many of those Thanksgiving passenger could be making a simmillar trip. Even then it's still less then half of the number of people who would normally be traveling.

Keep ignoring them. This isn't Iran. The Government isn't paying your bills and not responsible for your health. Its also a 99.96% survivable rate for Christ sake
