    The health and general insurance companies have recently launched two standard COVID-19 health insurance policies -- Corona Kavach and Corona Rakshak. While Corona Kavach is a standard indemnity-based COVID-19 policy, Corona Rakshak is a fixed benefit plan.
    The insurers have announced the launch of the Corona Kavach policies for three -and-a-half months; six-and-a-half months and nine-and-a-half months with sum insured ranging from Rs 50,000 to Rs 5 lakh (in multiples of Rs 50,000).
    According to experts, Corona Kavach should be bought to get additional coverage for PPE kits and other essential consumables which may not be covered in existing policies.
    These policies have common coverage across the industry. However, there are some difference in the way insurers have priced the product.
    Here's a comparison of Corona Kavach policy's premiums across different companies, according to Policybazaar:
