  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaCovid-19 task force spokesman Wiku Adisasmito shared several ways to maintain and boost the immune system during the Covid-19 pandemic.

    “The first is the quality of food intake, that’s important,” he said Friday, September 4.

    Consume food with balanced nutrients, comprising carbohydrate, protein, vegetables, fibers from fruits, vitamins, and micronutrients. Make sure to drink enough water to stay hydrated, he added.

    Wiku continued that you should take a good rest to let cells in the body regenerate. He suggested people to sleep for 7-8 hours per day to help maintain and increase the immune system.

    Next, maintain your balance by doing an exercise, for example. Take 30-40 minutes of your time daily to workout at home or yard.

    Lastly, do not get stressed out. Manage your stress to maintain and boost the immune system. One of the ways is by doing fun activities at home.
