Ms. Danya Al Atrash, clinical dietitian, Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery, Dubai, explained: “It is a popular myth that taking zinc or vitamin C-rich foods will protect us from common flu and other diseases. Covid-19 evokes similar symptoms to that of common flu. This could have been the reason why people started taking zinc and vitamin rich foods. However, it should be realised that once affected by the disease, these supplements will not help in faster recovery as per research.”
