Middle Seat: Mere touch of infected person will not transmit COVID-19 unless nose/ mouth is touched after, Expert Committee tells Bombay HC
The Bombay High Court on Friday passed an interim order directing airlines to follow the May 31 circular of the Civil Aviation ministry that had allowed middle-seats in flights to be occupied, provided that the passenger wears ‘wrap-around’ gowns and the SOPs issued by the DGCA to guard against COVID-19 spread are strictly followed.
The order was passed following a clarification by the Expert Committee formed under the Ministry of Civil Aviation that COVID-19 could be transmitted by inadvertent touch only under certain specific circumstances.
The Committee has clarified that contact with the mouth or nose may heighten chances of COVID-19 transmission. However, an invertent touch to another part of the body or clothing by itself would not transmit the virus.

As per Bombay High Judgemnt based on Experts Reports which says that Mere touch of Covid19 positive patient would not transmit virus to others..
On the basis of that report Bombay High Court Allowed the Airlines to occupying middle seat, and therefore in Planes, there is no Social Distance…. specially for the persons those are coming from abroad… 🤔🤔🤔🤔
Now question is that Is Corona Dallas weak in Airline and stronger in Bike Avtiva and Cars… why these two kind of rules for Corona… because one is big corporates and another is middle man..
If middle mans doen not wear Maks than fine and if two sitted than also fine rs 2000/- but in Airlines no fine….
