“During this difficult time, it is important to continue looking after your physical and mental health, this will not only help you but in the long term,” he said.

He said it is important to eat healthy and nutritious diet, which helps the immune system to function properly.

“Limit your alcohol consumption and avoid sugary drinks. Do not smoke, smoking can increase your risk of developing severe disease if you become infected with COVID 19,” he added.

He explained that exercise plays a vital role to the health and as such, “WHO recommends 30 minutes of physical activity a day for adults and one hour a day for children”.

“If your local or national guildlines allow it, go outside for a work a run or a ride and keep a safe distance from others, if you can’t leave the house, find an exercise video online, dance to music, do some yoga or walk up and down the stairs,” he said.

He harped on the need for individuals to look after their mental health and advised that communication help reduce the mental stress.

“Look after your mental health, it’s normal to feel stressed, confused and scared during a crisis, talking to people you know and trust can help. Supporting other people in your community can help you as much as it does to them,” he added.

“Check on neighbours, family and friends. Compassion is a medicine, listen to music, read a book or play a game.
“Try not read or watch too much news if it makes you anxious. Get your information from reliable sources once or twice a day,” Mr Ghebreyesus said.
