Pru Life UK is now offering a free insurance specific to COVID-19 for free (with coverage for 45 days) via their app, PULSE. Grab it while it’s available! It’s only for the first 500,000 people who will sign up! You can get this free offer from the insurance company until May 13, 2020 only.

According to the website, Pulse, is a first-of-its-kind health app that provides 24/7 real-time health information. We installed and looked at the app and it shares some likeliness to PhilamLife’s Vitality app. Pulse, on the other hand, offers more to its users like  Symptom Checker and Wrinkle Index. The app is rad, and we encourage you to check it out.
