Does garlic protect against coronavirus?
On the social media, you can often find folk tips for protection against coronavirus. So, many authors recommend garlic for prevention - but does it make sense?
According to the WHO, garlic is a wholesome product that does have an antimicrobial effect. However, there is no evidence that its use can protect against a new coronavirus - and even more so in the treatment.
During the outbreak of an epidemic in China, people often resorted to similar folk methods - and this did not always end well. The South China Morning Post reported a woman from Zhejiang who read online that raw garlic protects against coronavirus and ate about 16 heads (about 1.5 kilograms) in two weeks. When she went to the hospital with suspected coronavirus, she showed no signs of illness. Instead, she was hospitalized with a sore throat caused by eating garlic - because of the edema, she could hardly speak.
Summarizing the available data: if you feel calmer and close ones are not against a specific smell, a little garlic will not hurt - for example, in the form of cream soup or garlic croutons. But you should not wait for a magical effect and neglect other preventive measures of COVID-19.
Donald Trump once again provoked the indignation of the American public opinion - even on the day when the officials from Washington announced a devastating balance of the coronavirus epidemic, the president of the United States preferred to play golf!
Trump has chosen to relax on Memorial Day, a day to pay tribute to the American military who gave their lives for their country.
But instead of a visit to the Pentagon or Arlington Cemetery where many war heroes are buried, Trump went to his golf club, which he had not visited for more than two months.
And at the White House, the death toll from coronavirus was close to 100,000, a figure that puts the United States at the top of both casualties and infections, over 1.6 million people.
Asked about the fact that instead of mourning he plays golf, President Trump said he hopes to resume golf tournaments as soon as possible.
"We want life back to normal as soon as possible. I can't wait to see golfers again and enjoy the same experience as mine," Trump said.

Some parents share their desk space with kids or are having furry little friends participate in conference calls. No matter in which situation you are, you have to work or study at home. Online conferences are the best option, while learning and working process is maintained.
