For new policy buyers, the death due to COVID-19 is covered under the plan after the purchase of the policy. While purchasing the policy it is important to keep in mind that as long you share all the details correctly with the insurers, whether the person is affected or not affected with the COVID-19, the death claim will be paid to the beneficiary even if the death of the life assured is caused due to coronavirus.
