THE coronavirus pandemic is set to continue until such time when a World Health Organisation-endorsed vaccine is found, which could be at least 18 to 24 months away. In the meantime, we have to protect ourselves by following the government’s mantra to practise social distancing, wash our hands with soap regularly and wear a mask when we go out.
I believe that one pertinent aspect that has been missed (or that has not been given the emphasis it deserves) is on building up our immune system by leading a healthy lifestyle. For now, our immune system must adjust unassisted to this deadly enemy until a vaccine is found. So can we not give serious attention to boosting that system?
