Practicing proper hygiene and regular daily disinfection certainly do the job of keeping the threat of the COVID-19 coronavirus at bay. However, there is another way to prevent you from getting infected by a virus that has no developed cure or vaccine to date, and that is by keeping your immune system strong and healthy. This is where vitamin C comes in.

Weber, pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, NY.
