Karthik RamanathanAs the unfolding of the virus is hastily increasing, it is very vital to comply with covid protection guidelines, educate all people and spread awareness about social behaviour. It is concerning that we have a tendency to continuously forget to sanitize, maintain social distancing and abide through the policies and guidelines! This regularly takes place even as we are travelling in public transportation; metros, buses, trains.

While flying, PPE kits (Personal Protection Equipment kits) are provided to the passengers for secure traveling experiences. Few ignorant tourists choose not to wear the necessary, this lack of knowledge is likewise one of the reasons for the spread of the virus.

Usage of common amenities such as handrails, public restrooms, cutlery in restaurants and many more are inconvenient, additionally adds to the tension and worry for the tourists. Actions as easy as forgetting to sanitize hands after shopping for tickets create high risks of getting affected. There is no other way other than eating at restaurants as it may not be convenient to cook your own food…
