President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged the generality of the Ghanaian people to eat foods that will boost their immune systems in order to help them fight off the COVID-19 Virus.
These foods according to the president include dawadawa, kontomire, crabs, plantain, brown rice and okro.
The president who made the suggestion during his 9th update on the COVID-19 pandemic on Sunday night listed other foods such such as mushrooms, oranges, millet and cashew nuts as those that people must patronize to fortify themselves against the virus.
These aside, BestNewsGH.com reports the president as positing that following a good diet, eating healthy and exercising regularly while ensuring personal hygiene can help keep the virus away.
The president said ‘’We have to improve our hygiene, our fitness and exercises, our eating, generally, our style of living, which will boost our immunity to disease and the virus. For instance, we are told that the key vitamins that fortify our immune system are vitamins A, B6, C, and E. Fortunately for us, in Ghana, all of these can be found in many of our foods, such as oranges, kontomire, millet, cashew nuts, crabs, plantain, okro, dawadawa, brown rice and mushrooms. Following a good diet, patronising our healthy foods, exercising regularly, ensuring our personal hygiene, and improving our lifestyle habits should become part and parcel of our daily routines, which will help bolster our immune systems, and help us in the fight against the pandemic..
