The major victims are long-distance travelers who spent 10-12 hours on planes or overnight buses and trains.
Staying immobile for such a long time causes the blood flow to stagnate. This may also result in a condition where blood pools in the feet and forms a clot. The clot can travel to the heart or lungs, a condition known as DVT (Deep Vein thrombosis), and even can cause death.
Out of 2 million people who suffer from DVT every year, long distance travel is sited as the culprit in the majority of cases.
