President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaians to be mindful of the foods they take in order to improve their immune system.
The President also urged citizens to undertake regularly exercises all aimed at improving their immune systems which is a key element in recovering from the virus.
The President in his 9th address to the nation since Ghana recorded its first two cases of the virus encouraged Ghanaians to consume Kontomire, Dawadawa, Millet, Cashew nuts, Crabs, Plantain, Okro, Brown rice and mushrooms to help build their immune system in the fight against the pandemic.
“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,” the President added.
