Solve Health Issues at Home With MediBuddy Gold

It still comes as a surprise to some people that they can consult a doctor online. The question“But doesn’t a doctor have to see me?” comes first to people’s minds. While this is a valid concern, this mindset negates all the other times that a person can resolve a health issue without going to a doctor. The pros of consulting a doctor online far outweigh this con. These reasons include:

  • Chronic ailments: For ailments that need constant monitoring, it becomes easier to get a consultation online.
  • Geographical barriers: One can even consult a specialist who works in a different city.
  • Lack of time: Juggling work while making time for health issues is a real concern.
  • Privacy: Online consultations provide privacy for sensitive issues related to sexual and mental health issues.
  • Other reasons:  It’s a boon during a pandemic, if you have been asked to stay at home during  the crisis. There might be some people who cannot physically make it to a doctor because of their age or due to the limitations of being differently-abled.

Travelling during coronavirus

Things to consider while travelling during the COVID-19 outbreak

Travelling during coronavirus

Contemplating travel right now? We know it can be very confusing to make up your mind as coronavirus continues to spread globally. While some countries have closed borders, some have limited international and domestic flights. Be well informed and evaluate the risks involved in travelling. Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about travelling during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Should I cancel my trip?

This particular question arises in case you have an upcoming trip that was booked months and weeks ago. While health experts have already said you should not travel, many state governments have announced emergencies and instructed to avoid needless travel. Many countries have also closed their borders, which makes international travel quite difficult.

Several airlines, hotels and other travel companies have made their cancellation policies flexible for travellers, due to the pandemic. Since it is unpredictable how long the pandemic will last, it is better to cancel your trip for the time being.

What is the risk of getting COVID-19 on an aeroplane?

Although the risk of getting an infection on an aeroplane is low, it is advisable to avoid contact with other passengers, especially people who are coughing, sneezing or feeling unwell. Wash your hands frequently or use a hand sanitiser with 60% alcohol content.

All airlines are now using a disinfectant on hard surfaces and wiping all items before each flight, but you should try not to touch tables, trays, newspapers, magazines, etc.

What about travel insurance and refunds?

Insurance companies have very strict policies and circumstances when they decide to pay you in case you cancel your trip. Choosing not to travel due to fear or panic is completely up to you and does not come under the coverage of insurance policies.

What preventive measures should we follow while travelling?

It is important to take preventive measures if you must travel. Seek medical attention if you have difficulty in breathing, and use a handkerchief while you cough or sneeze. Wash your hands as often as possible and carry a hand sanitiser with you at all times. Do not ignore any symptoms and immediately report your condition to medical authorities.

What precautions should you take while you are away from home?

It is important to be aware of the place you are heading to. You should be updated with the information on COVID-19 affected areas, death rate, recovery rate, etc. Avoid going to places that are on high alert. Most importantly maintain at least one-meter distance from people. You should also consider self-monitoring. Make sure you seek medical help if you show any symptoms and not neglect it.


COVID-19 has disrupted our everyday lives. Travelling amid a pandemic is the last thing you should do. With rising cases of coronavirus, we cannot really predict when the virus will subside. Until then, maintain social distancing and stay safe.

Coronavirus is spreading at an alarming rate, and is something you should be cautious against! So, don’t leave space for any confusion! If you have medical queries on Coronavirus, call us on 080-47193456
