Contrary to the notion spreading round that spicing of soup with more pepper can prevent the deadly Coronavirus, the World Health Organisation has clearly debunked the statement, that adding pepper to your soup is not the best way to prevent the virus.
It said, no evidence has shown that adding pepper to your soup or other meals could protect people from getting infected with the new coronavirus. “Keep safe by staying up to date with accurate information and be aware of misinformation on social media.”
The world health body also noted that hot peppers in your food, though very tasty, cannot prevent or cure COVID-19.
The UN agency however advised that the best way to prevent oneself from COVID-19 is to ‘do the five.’
“Wash your hands frequently, cover your face with an elbow when you sneeze or cough.
“Don’t touch your face, keep a safe distance from one another. Stay home and stay safe,” WHO said.
The UN agency also noted that there are over 827,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa.
Also, WHO said keeping at least one metre away from others and to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly.
It also said that washing your hands regularly is also beneficial for your general health, adding that to maintain a balanced diet, one must stay well hydrated, exercise regularly and sleep well.”
“Over 827,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases on the African continent – with more than 483,000 recoveries and 17,000 deaths,” it said.
