This week the Relaxback UK Show has a wonderful guest. Professor Adrian Hayday is an immunologist at Kings Colleg London. He has been looking at the response of patients to the virus that causes covid-19 and has very interesting things to say about the potential vaccines being developed. There is also a potential way of figuring out if patients who have the disease are likely to get very ill or not - this could help hospitals enormously if there is a large second wave and the resources need to be used wisely.
One thing that has come out of my chats with researchers and doctors is that the advice of social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands is vital to help keep the disease in check. Also if you eat a healthy balanced diet, do a bit of exercise and get enough sleep you will be in the best place to deal with the disease should you get it. Before a vaccine is available there is no evidence that various suplements etc will get your system ready to fight the disease anymore than this.
