The Liklihood of You Catching a Disease While on an Airplane

Airplanes can be germy places, but it turns out they’re not great at spreading infectious diseases among passengers. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says if a suspected tuberculosis carrier was aboard a jet, the agency wouldn’t expect exposure to extend beyond two rows in either direction.

However, airliners are good at delivering infectious diseases to entire countries. The SARS breakout in Canada in 2003 was traced to a single airline passenger. Experts say that the chance of catching Ebola from a fellow passenger is slim, as the virus is spread through direct contact with infected bodily fluids, not by sitting in a middle seat.
