TSA Reports New Pandemic-Era High for Travelers

The Transportation Security Administration said it screened 842,949 people Sunday, the second time the agency processed more than 800,000 since air travel hit a low in mid-April.

The agency said both of the 800,000-plus travelers took place this month. In contrast, TSA had nearly 2.6 million people on the third Sunday in August in 2019, CNN reported.

In addition, the agency’s numbers showed the number of people screened rose higher somewhat last week: an increase of 29 percent of last year’s traffic from 27 percent as of last weekend, CNN reported.

The U.S. currently has 5.4 million coronavirus cases, including more than 170,000 deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently forecasted the nation’s death toll due could reach 200,000 by Labor Day.
