The new SARS-Cozv-2 virus is still spreading, as is the illness Covid-19, which is caused  by SARS-CoV-2. The public, healthcare professionals, scientists, businesses, and governments  all have a stake in saving lives and curbing the global epidemic. It is critical that the public get  evidence-based, accurate, and timely guidance; anything less would be misleading and perhaps  harmful. Misinformation has been widespread on popular information channels, such as social  media platforms, which has been fueled by fear and anxiety. This has been especially true when  it comes to nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. The WHO, the UK, Irish, and US  governments, the European Commission, as well as public health and healthcare organisations,  have issued advice for preventing the spread of COVID-19, including important guidance on  self-isolation.
