Travelling Precaution During COVID – 19

As you know Coronavirus spread worldwide and it affects so many countries including India but we are fortunate that India is safe in comparison to other countries. It is just a business of terror that is rapidly influencing through media which is controlling our mind. The number of active cases according to the Health Ministry of the government of India is Just 0.051% and the Death rate is 1.83% and the media is showing that 0.24% active cases. While approx 0.032% of people die by accident, approx 0.032% of people die by TB and 0.058% of people die by cancer every year in India. 



People who are affected by Corona can be cured within 3 to 7 days. For example,  the Staff of Hindustan Unilever Company Ltd. (Haridwar Plant)was affected by Corona but all 500 people recovered within three days. It is a little bit dangerous for those people who have chronic diseases like Cancer, Kidney failure, etc. We advise them to avoid traveling, the rest can travel by taking the below precautions.

 · Self-assessment- Self-assessment means self checkup. You can analyze yourself by exercise, Stop breath for 30 seconds, and checking your physical fitness if you are active and healthy so you can travel. 

 · Analysis COVID 19 cases in your locality – Be assured that there will be fewer COVID 19 cases in your locality before you start your trip. If there are many cases then avoid your trip as it may be dangerous for other people, they can be affected.

 · Analysis of the destination where you want to go – Check the COVID cases for that place where you want to go. You may analyze COVID cases through government websites, through local travel agents, etc. 

 · Wear a mask and wash hands– Wearing a mask and washing and sanitizing your hand regularly is the best practice to control this virus spreading all around.

 · Keep social distancing – Do not touch anybody and try to make a distance of a minimum of six feet. Avoid handshakes and hugs from anyone who is not in the household. 

 · Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose – Do not touch your face unnecessarily. It may carry dust particles into your body and the face is such a sensitive part of our body so avoid touching it again and again.

 Corona is just a terror that is rapidly controlling our mind and money because you are locked and you are not free to do work or earn money and that fear can destroy us one day. We have to kill that fear before it kills us. 

 Great things never came from comfort zones.
 Cowards die a thousand deaths,
 But the brave only die once.
