Bananas not a cure for Covid-19 - health advocate




Social media was a buzz about the possible cure for the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or Covid-19, is the lowly banana which is abundantly available in the country.

As soon as the news are spreading a health advocate readily shot down the claims on the same social media that bananas can be considered as a cure as a coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).


“Hindi po proven na makakatulong ang saging para labanan ang Covid-19 (It has not been  proven that bananas will help cure Covid-19),” Dr. Raymond John Naguit, Akbayan Youth chairman, said.

Doctor Naguit made the statement after a video claiming that “a banana a day keeps [the] coronavirus away” circulated on social media.
The video claims that a group of researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia have proven that bananas improve the immune system, helping prevent Covid-19.

Naguit explains that while bananas can be of big help in improving ones immune system, but this fact is all the same for all fruits.


Of course yung mga prutas na mayaman sa (Those fruits that are rich in) vitamins can be of big help na palakasin ang (to strengthen our) immune system,” he said.
Pero hindi siya pwedeng i-generalize, kasi alam natin na maraming sugar ang saging na pwedeng maka-apekto sa may diabetes, so hindi ko siya gagawin as general recommendation para sa lahat (But we cannot generalize, as we know bananas have high sugar that can affect people with diabetes, so I cannot recommend it for all).” he added.
