Airlines are running almost empty flights amidst the coronavirus outbreak. It’s the only way to keep their airport slots. Existing guidelines state that they must use at least 80 percent of their assigned slots. If not, they can lose these slots to other carriers. This rule applies to all destinations except flights to and from mainland China. Authorities have relaxed the regulation for trips there. Countries like South Korea and Italy have seen reduced demand as travelers stay away.
US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has implemented enhanced screening. This screening is taking place at US ports of entry. The CBP sends anyone found with symptoms of the illness to the CDC or local health officials. There, these patients are subject to more health screening. CBP also sends anyone with a travel history to China or other severely affected areas.
Solid Waste and Wastewater Management
At present, no evidence exists of the COVID-19 virus surviving in sewage or drinking water. Exposure to high or low pH, heat, and sunlight can kill the virus. So can common disinfectants such as chlorine bleach. Also, no special precautions are in place to protect sanitation workers from COVID-19. They are using existing protocols when handling ordinary solid waste. Authorities recommend that these workers continue to use safeguards already in place. These protections are only for carrying out regular job responsibilities.
About Coronavirus Market Research
No universal definition for the term “pandemic” exists. But there are three general conditions. The first condition is that it must be a virus that can cause illness or death. The second condition requires sustained person-to-person transmission. The third one is, there must be evidence of spread throughout the world. CNN was the first major news outlet to say COVID-19 meets all three criteria. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization officially declared the disease a pandemic. Epidemiology experts suggest that the virus will continue to spread.
