Dealing with flu had never been a cause of worry for most of us but now even a minor cough or sneeze reminds us of the dangerous effects of this disease. As the virus transfers from one individual to another rapidly, it is essential to take the necessary precautions. Self-isolation and following social distancing are the best way to control the pace at which the disease is spreading.
The virus spreads when a normal person comes in contact with an infected person. It gets transferred when the affected person coughs or sneezes; or by touching infected surfaces.

Owing to the lack of specific treatment for Covid-19, it becomes essential for people to seriously follow the above guidelines and adhere to the advice given by the authorities.
For any minor or major ailment, it is always better to seek advice from a medical professional instead of choosing self-medication. Getting the best healthcare in India, especially from private hospitals, implies a lot of expenditure. Without a suitable health cover, many families would have to spend a significant amount of their hard-earned savings for availing treatment.
