Abstract

Coronavirus was proclaimed as a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. Every one of the nations is battling with this infection which has been appalling to humankind. Coronavirus had affected individuals with low resistance and poor way of living. We are encountering an uncommon test due to the Covid disease. Thus, we need to beat the infection by changing our way of life and further developing immunity to bring down the risk of being affected by the infection. Although the whole population has been affected, we have adapted to social distancing, wearing masks, frequent sanitation, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and cleanliness. There were both positive and negative impacts in the case of diet but we haven’t forgotten to intake immunity building foods during the pandemic and being fit has been carried forward even after the pandemic. Studies show that there was a subtle decrease in smoking patterns and a great increase in mental health issues. We have survived among all the odds making the air cleaner and the earth warmer.
