In order to strengthen contactless customer engagement to maintain social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) on July 8 said it has launched online booking platform on its official website.
The new online booking platform provides a quick and transparent booking experience for customers who can select the variant, colour and authorised dealer of their choice and complete their booking in six easy steps, HMSI said in a statement.
"Digitisation is the key to connect with the contactless customer in this era of new normal," HMSI Director - Sales and Marketing Yadvinder Singh Guleria said.
The online booking platform on the company's official website maximises customer convenience of booking their favourite Honda two wheeler without stepping out, he added.
"The entire vehicle selection and booking journey is secured and has been compressed into few simple clicks thus allowing customers to relax with peace of mind," Guleria said.
Frequently Asked Questions
A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.
There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.
Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.
