In the middle of this Coronavirus pandemic, people have lots of concerns and queries about this disease and their prebooked flights and hotels. Here are some of the facts and resolutions.

What is Coronavirus, how it’s spread?

Coronavirus early symptoms are minimal, but later on, it’s more like flu. The other names of this virus are Covid 19 and Norovirus as well.

It’s a well-known fact how the Coronavirus is spread. At an initial stage the number of affected people may be less. However it spread on the drop of the hat within the communities from stage 3. For the same reason, people are advised on the precautionary measures. Most of the public places like malls, multiplex, gym are closed in India till 31st March to prevent its increase.

How to Practice Social Distancing & Self- Quarantine?

Social distancing and Self-quarantine can be the best solution to control the widespread of this pandemic. When we talk of social distancing, it should be maintained with at least a distance of 6 feet. The best way to do this is by avoiding the social gathering and stay in self-quarantine mode. Self-quarantine is like staying in isolation for some time.

Unnecessary traveling should be avoided to the extent possible. However, if you have come from an unavoidable trip, then you must stay in mandatory quarantine for a period of minimum of 15 days. This is most critical in the case of international flights. The infected person may not have any apparent system.  Nevertheless, he or she has good chances of spreading to others.

Kanika’s coronavirus case is the latest example of the same. Kanika Kapoor is a singer and a well-known celebrity. Around 400 people are suspected of catching the virus through her as she is corona positive. It all happened when she returned from London on 9th March and refrained from quarantine unintentionally.

So as a responsible person, it’s our prime responsibility to practice both social distancing & self-quarantine for few days to minimize the risk of the spread of the virus.

Many of you might have already booked flights and stay in the coming months. Now the most prominent question is whether to continue, cancel or reschedule the same. While many of you are already canceling it, some people are still contemplating it. These are the people who are stuck in other countries, and their visa is expiring.

Others are worried about the cancellation fee and rescheduling. While some airlines are giving waivers, however, others are charging as usual. Trip cancellation and interruption is a loss for both the passenger and the airlines. It can be minimized by talking to your travel agents or airlines.

What is the Consequence of Taking a Trip during Coronavirus?

In cities like Mumbai, people are already getting ink stamped for compulsory isolation, even if there are tested negative.   For domestic trips, please stay alert and conscious of the hygiene factors around.

Things happen for a reason. Stay positive, and this too shall pass soon. Coronavirus cure might take some time till then, we have to manage the phase with patience. Take all the precautionary measures as advised by the health ministry.
