Smita Ray Choudhury [3]

Abstract: Prevention is a key strategy to fight, control and stop the spread of the novel Coronavirus. At present global policymakers are strongly focusing on preventive measures like economic lockdown and vaccinations to keep the pandemic in check. In support of these two preventive measures, the immune system boosting micronutrient too can play a vital role to control the spread of the pandemic.This review thus focuses on a key micronutrient, Zinc that strengthens the immune system of the human body. This micronutrient can be made available to a large percentage of the population in a short period without much logistic and infrastructure support ? with measures like encouraging farmers to produce zinc resilient food like certain vegetables and fruits and by controlling its price and distribution. Since the upcoming third pandemic wave is feared to target the children, this review, therefore, discusses the Possible role of Zinc as a natural immunity booster in children to fight against the Covid infection.
