Speaking to OneIndia, Dr Arun Sashidhar, a Neuroscientist at NIMHANS said, "Sleep is one aspect where our human body is trying to reorganise and boost immunity. If an individual is suffering from fever, the immune system is in process of identifying the trouble maker and fix the blood supply. Now, in sleeping, the proteins raise only when the immune system is functioning properly. Due to lack of sleep, an individual's body fail to provide better immune system and hence can become a prey for different virus."

The neuroscientist further said that eating well-cooked food and having a better sleep would help the immune system function better.

In a latest development, the Delhi government has directed all the schools in the city to suspend morning assembly as a precautionary measure for coronavirus.
