In wake of global pandemic scenario different governments are stimulating the economy by providing welfare funds directly to the public. particularly who lost their jobs and having issue with basic foodstuff availability. The question is whether it will fulfil the dietary needs? Will it be a stimulus for the economy.

The developed countries have issued considerable funds for those who lost their jobs. The funds could be considered to the contribution to living expenses which are estimated keep in view the dietary need and other essential requirement such as house rents etc.

As far as Pakistan is concerned the government of Pakistan has issued 12000 rupees per family to cope with dietary expenses of jobless families in wake of recent lockdown. This amount is not sufficient but the step is appreciable though the economy is poor and still offering the extent it can. This step will not only make possible for the public to maintain basic food stuff but it will enhance the circulation of money in form of stimulus in the economy.

Now coming to the availability of basic foodstuff in markets. Pakistan is a poor country but blessed with tasteful plenty of vegetables. Fruits and grains available on cheap rates that could help to maintain a reasonable health with limited resources and the ongoing handicapped situation. Use of fresh vegetables could boost immunity level. The diet which is required most to boost immune system is rich Vitamin C and D.

The best source of vitamin D is sunlight. Try to sit at least 15 minutes in sunlight. Use of orange, Guava, lemon along with salads could help to gain and maintain health.

However, it depends upon the public how they utilise the available food resources. If the hunger and starvation increased in poor countries, it will reduce the immunity level and the deadly virus could be more fatal to infect.
