Want to know why health insurance for coronavirus, and especially the Corona Kavach policy, is important? Read on!

Coronavirus has proved to be quite world traveller, spreading quickly and affection millions of people. The lockdown and erstwhile measures surely helped in slowing the virus down. But as we are all emerging from the lockdown, we need to be aware that the virus is a lot closer to us than what we think. 

We all now know that we need to maintain hygiene and practice social distancing to avoid coming in contact with the virus. But no method is 100% fool-proof. In fact, a report by CDDEP (US based Center for Disease, Dynamics & Economic Policy predicted that India’s cases could be in the range of 55-138 Crores by September 2020. And that is where a coronavirus insurance policy can be your biggest weapon to battle the disease.

With the unpredictable nature of the SARS-COV-2 virus, and the rising costs needs to battle it, the Corona Kavach health insurance can truly be your knight in shining armour, in the worst case scenario that you test positive for coronavirus.

Key Features of Corona Kavach Policy

This number is purely on the basis of the average duration taken for recovery for coronavirus patients, which is around 15 days.
