Public health experts recommend people to take vitamin D supplements daily in spring and summer because the coronavirus block is restricted.
Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium – important for maintaining healthy bones and teeth.
Usually, the BBC explains, most people get enough vitamin D when they spend time outdoors because our skin creates it when it is exposed to the sun.

Therefore, Public Health England previously suggested that everyone should consider taking a supplement only during the fall and winter months when the sunshine is limited.
However, it has now changed its advice because it fears that blocking the population will deprive it of the most important nutrient.
The Telegraph says that a lack of vitamin D can lead to a number of diseases, including rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, which cause bones to become soft, weakened, and in some cases deformed.
Sara Stanner of the British Nutrition Foundation said: “Unfortunately, given the ongoing effects of the coronavirus, many of us are limited in the amount of time we can spend outdoors.

All captions come from the WHO website. The organization is currently reviewing ongoing research into the spread of COVID-19 and will continue to share new knowledge.
The COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
According to current knowledge, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, even in areas with hot and humid weather.

The most effective way to protect yourself from the new coronavirus is to clean your hands often with alcohol-based hand rubs or with them Wash water and soap.
Taking a hot bath doesn’t prevent the new coronavirus disease
A hot bath will not prevent you from catching COVID-19. Your normal body temperature remains between 36.5 ° C and 37 ° C regardless of the temperature of your bath or shower. In fact, a hot bath with extremely hot water can be harmful as it can burn you. The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to wash your hands frequently. Doing so will eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infections that can occur if you touch your eyes, mouth, and nose.
The new corona virus cannot be transmitted by mosquito bites.
So far there is no information or evidence that the new corona virus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. The new corona virus is a respiratory virus that spreads mainly through droplets that occur when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, frequently clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand massage or wash them with soap and water. Also avoid close contact with people who cough and sneeze.
Are hand dryers effective in killing the new corona virus?
No. Hand dryers are not effective in killing the 2019 nCoV. To protect yourself from the new corona virus, you should frequently clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand massage or wash with soap and water. Once your hands are cleaned, you should dry them thoroughly with paper towels or a warm air dryer.
Can a UV disinfection lamp kill the new corona virus?
UV lamps should not be used to sterilize hands or other skin areas, as UV radiation can cause skin irritation.
How effective are thermal scanners in detecting people infected with the new corona virus?
Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have developed a fever (i.e., have a higher body temperature than normal) due to infection with the new coronavirus. However, you can not recognize infected, but not yet febrile people. This is because it takes between 2 and 10 days for infected people to get sick and develop a fever.
Can spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body kill the new corona virus?
Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothing or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). Note that both alcohol and chlorine can be useful for surface disinfection, but must be used as directed.
Is it safe to receive a letter or package from China?

Can pets spread the new corona virus (2019-nCoV) at home?
There is currently no evidence that pets / pets such as dogs or cats can be infected with the new corona virus. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands with soap and water after coming into contact with pets. This protects you from various common bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella that can be transmitted between pets and humans.
Do you protect pneumonia vaccines from the new coronavirus?
No. Pneumonia vaccines such as the pneumococcal vaccine and Haemophilus influenza type B (Hib) vaccine do not offer protection against the new coronavirus. The virus is so new and different that it needs its own vaccine. Researchers are trying to develop a 2019 nCoV vaccine, and WHO supports their efforts. Although these vaccines against 2019-nCoV are not effective, vaccination against respiratory diseases is strongly recommended to protect your health.
Can regular rinsing of the nose with saline help prevent infection with the new coronavirus?
No. There is no evidence that regular rinsing of the nose with saline has protected people from infection with the new coronavirus. There is little evidence that rinsing your nose regularly with saline can help people recover more quickly from the common cold. However, regular rinsing of the nose has not been shown to prevent respiratory infections.
Can eating garlic help prevent infection with the new corona virus?
Garlic is a healthy food that can have some antimicrobial properties. However, there is no evidence of the current outbreak that eating garlic has protected people from the new corona virus.
Does the application of sesame oil block the entry of the new corona virus into the body?
No. Sesame oil does not kill the new corona virus. There are some chemical disinfectants that can kill the 2019 nCoV on surfaces. These include bleach / chlorine based disinfectants, either solvents, 75 percent ethanol, peracetic acid and chloroform. However, they have little or no effect on the virus when placed on the skin or under the nose. It can even be dangerous to apply these chemicals to your skin.
Does the new coronavirus affect older people or are younger people also vulnerable?
People of all ages can be infected with the new corona virus (2019-nCoV). Older people and people with pre-existing diseases (such as asthma, diabetes, heart diseases) seem to be more susceptible to serious diseases with the virus. The WHO advises people of all ages to take measures to protect themselves from the virus, for example through good hand hygiene and good breathing hygiene.
Are antibiotics effective in preventing and treating the new coronavirus?
No, antibiotics do not work against viruses, only against bacteria. The new corona virus (2019-nCoV) is a virus and therefore antibiotics should not be used for prevention or treatment. However, if you are hospitalized for the 2019 nCoV, you may be given antibiotics because bacterial co-infection is possible.
Are there any special medicines to prevent or treat the new coronavirus?
So far, no specific drug for the prevention or treatment of the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is recommended. However, those infected with the virus should receive adequate care to relieve and treat symptoms, and those with serious illness should receive optimized supportive care. Some specific treatments are currently being studied and tested through clinical trials. WHO helps accelerate research and development efforts with a number of partners.
More information on preventive measures and guidelines on the virus can be found on the WHO website.
“Correct compliance with government regulations and staying at home are extremely important. Although many of us have limited access to sunlight, we need to take a little more care to keep our vitamin D levels healthy.”
The Daily Express says supplements are proposed “despite the wall-to-wall sunshine that has fallen in many parts of the country this week” because “not everyone is lucky enough to have a garden to enjoy “.
The vitamin is available in supermarkets and pharmacies, either as a single supplement or as part of a multivitamin tablet.
Although Spanish and French researchers are conducting clinical trials to determine whether vitamin D helps coronavirus patients, there is currently no evidence that it reduces the risk of developing or contracting coronavirus.
