Corona is one of the deadliest diseases in Indian history, resulting in many deaths and confining people at home. With no surety of the causes of the disease’s spread, the virus is getting transmitted rapidly among people. This rapid transmission is one of the top reasons people of the same family are affected at once, causing many inconveniences.

The virus is so infectious that if one of your family members is trying to take care of you, there are very high chances of getting him/her affected. You can’t walk into any hospital to get a consultation for the treatment. Hence, the rise of online covid consultation allows you to take consultations at home through video or audio.
