It has been several months since each and every one of us is individually fighting a war against coronavirus which began from China in December and has now been declared a pandemic. Not only this, but the monsoon season is also here.

This makes us more vulnerable to diseases and especially to COVID-19 during the season. Therefore it becomes crucial for everyone to eat foods and follow certain practices that will keep you healthy and away from not just the novel coronavirus but also other water-borne diseases such as indigestion, diarrhea, jaundice, etc.
