Here's the risk level of our daily activities during COVID-19

Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, we have resumed our daily work. But it is important for us to understand how risky are these activities and what should all of us be aware of, to ensure safety against coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

Here's the risk level of our daily activities during COVID-19

India has been under a coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown since March 2020, and ever since then, we have been asked to take several precautionary measures to stay safe amidst the viral infection. Three months after the lockdown, many cities in India have resumed their daily life, and with our lives getting back to the routine, we need to understand the risk level of activities which could help us stay cautious. Texas Medical Association (TMA) recently shared the list and Mumbai's popular Dr Muffi Lakdawala shared a post on Twitter, regarding the same, with a message that read, "Calculate your risk and weigh your options as we get used to living with #COVID19 and accept the new normal."
