One of the most circulated Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika published a news on 5th July claiming that researchers of The University of Edinburgh have already discovered that gurgling with salt water can cure you from COVID19.

Fact Check: WHO says Social distancing, Masks no more needed

A series of social media posts have erupted on social media claiming that the World Health Organization has said that Social distancing and masks are not required since Asymptotic corona patients no longer transmit the disease. We investigated and found that all these posts are misinterpreted from a comment made by a WHO official, Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, in a press conference in June 8 where she said asymptotic Coronavirus patients do not spread the disease. BUT, on following day, she has clarified her comment saying "it was taken out of context" and emphasized on the need to wear masks. WHO also has not changed their official recommendation related to social distancing norms. Because of that, we term these claims as false.

Your diet plays an important role in making your stress levels go up or down. Food can help tame stress in many ways. Some foods such as oatmeal boost the level of serotonin, a chemical that calms the brain. Other foods can reduce the levels of adrenaline and cortisol, which are the stress hormones. Healthy foods boost the immune system and maintain blood pressure.

Stress-busting foods include those with complex carbs that helps the body feel balanced by stabilizing the sugar levels. Other good stress-busting food choices include oranges, spinach, fatty fish, black tea, pistachios, avocados, almonds, warm milk, and some herbal supplements. 

You can always de-stress yourself with meditation and exercise besides changing your diet. A balanced diet helps counter the impact of stress by shoring up the immune system.
