President Nana Akufo Addo has offered Ghanaians tips on how they can bolster their immune systems to avoid contracting the deadly coronavirus.
Addressing the nation for the 9th time on measures taken to combat the disease, the President said that a healthy lifestyle builds a strong immune system.
“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.
Meanwhile, Ghana has recorded 4,700 cases with 22 deaths while 494 have recovered. Ashanti Region’s coronavirus cases have increased with 406 new confirmed cases.
