WHO: How to Boost your immune system to help the fight against COVID 19

The World Health Organisation director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has advised on how people can look after their health.

“First, eat a health and nutritious diet, which helps your immune system to function properly.

Second, limit your alcohol consumption, and avoid sugary drinks.

Third, do not smoke, he said, as smoking damages your lungs and can increase your risk of developing severe disease if you become infected with Covid-19.

Fourth, exercise. WHO recommends 30 minutes of physical activity a day for adults, and one hour a day for children.

If allowed, go outside for a walk or a run, while keeping a safe distance from others.

If you’re working at home, make sure you do not sit in the same position for long periods. Get up and take a three-minute break every 30 minutes.”

Director-General Ghebreyesus said this will not directly help the fight against the Covid-19 virus, but it will have long term benefits.
