  The World Health Organization on December 31, 2020 was informed by Chinese authorities of an outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. In February 20, 2020, nearly 167,500 COVID-19 cases have been documented and the virus has killed over 6,600 people [1]. The infected individuals may experience mild illness and recover while others can become seriously ill and die. The reasons for the differences between individuals with relevance to COVID-19 severity may be associated with biotherapy of the immune system [2]. Diet and nutrition have been a major focus with relevance to the global chronic disease epidemic.
