The myths about the COVID vaccine
There’s recent data coming out indicating that those suffering from long COVID and subsequent neurological damage are the millennials.
The main thing that's boggled scientists about COVID is the fact that you can have an incubation period of up to two weeks and be asymptomatic.
COVID does mutate but not as often as the flu virus.
Sleep, rest, and a stress-free lifestyle are key to improving your immune system.
Vitamin D is the only real supplement that can help the immune system.
Manage your stress.
Make sure you're getting enough rest and good-quality sleep.

“Just ‘coz you think that you're fit and healthy, COVID doesn't discriminate."
"The more the virus has to jump from host to host, the more it can learn how to outwit our defence mechanism."
