Take Your Vehicle for Mandatory Monsoon Servicing

That’s why it is advisable to take your vehicle for ‘monsoon servicing’ so that your vehicle can tackle wet roads. So, get your vehicle checked before you go out in the monsoon. 

Buy Health Insurance

As mentioned above, the number of road accidents increases every rainy season due to slippery roads. That’s why it is important to buy health insurance online in monsoon. As health insurance will provide financial support during the unfortunate event.

Wash Or Sanitize Your Hand

This is something that you would hear millions of times during this coronavirus pandemic. According to guidelines issued by the WHO or World Health Organisation, you need to wash your hand with soap for 20 seconds at least. You can also use an alcohol-based sanitizer. 

Wear Face Mask

Many countries, in the beginning, believed that only infected persons and people who work in essential services should wear face masks. But now many countries have made wearing a face mask in public mandatory. And wearing a face mask during monsoon is much important as it is proven that coronavirus can travel through humid, and humidity is high in the rainy season. So, make sure you wear a face mask.
