If the virus is hopefully controlled in a month or two, then especially continue to use vitamin C. Vitamin C has so many positive effects, for example: on your connective tissue, blood vessels, skin, bones, tendons, brain, etc.
Tablets are helpful when taking, but in fact pure vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate) is best.
The disadvantage of powder is that it is more difficult to dose and does not taste good.

- throughout the entire disease period
A level teaspoon is about 1 gram. Note there are large and small teaspoons so just weigh it out the first time you use it.
