Coronavirus and Travel Insurance
If you recently had plans to travel, you might be interested to know individual airlines and hotel chains have been relaxing their cancellation policies. However, travel insurance companies are a different story since insurance policies ONLY cover reasons listed in the plan. And sadly, a worldwide pandemic is not listed as a reason.

How Coronavirus Spreads?
The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air and quickly fall on floors or surfaces. You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within close proximity of someone who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then your eyes, nose, or mouth.

COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization.
