People spread the virus, and by far the biggest source has not been from air travel. Of the 100,000 people who have died in the US, very few got it from air travel. Most got it from person to person contact.

There have been a large number of the initial cases attributed to people who came from cruise ships. This is where people are exposed to other people repeatedly over days and weeks.
