TSA: U.S. Finally Surpasses 1 Million Daily Air Travelers
TSA SCREENED A MILLION PEOPLE SUNDAY - THE FIRST TIME THAT'S HAPPENED SINCE THE PANDEMIC HIT
(CNN) – The TSA says on Sunday it screened more than a million people.
It’s the first time since the pandemic hit that screenings have hit that level.
Still, the number was only about 40% of the 2.6two-point-six million people the agency saw on the same day last year.
Upwards of 2,000 TSA workers including airport screening officers have gotten the coronavirus; eight have died.
Last week also saw the highest weekly volume for TSA screenings since the pandemic hit 6.1 million passengers.
