Forest bathing and nature vs COVID-19 virus

Last Updated:May 27, 2020

Forest bathing may boost human immune function. On the other hand, COVID-19 virus may destroy human immune system.
Louise Osborne, a reporter/editor of Environment Deutsche Welle read Dr. Qing Li’s books: Shinrin-yoku (https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/308285/shinrin-yoku/9780241346952.html) and Forest bathing (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/579709/forest-bathing-by-dr-qing-li/9780525559856/) and found that Forest bathing may help people to overcome the COVID-19 virus.
Thus, she decided to take an interview with Dr. Qing Li on the topic of Forest bathing and nature vs COVID-19 virus. She put together a radio report on the importance of nature for our health and wellbeing, particularly in a world where many people are being prevented from going outside because of the COVID-19 virus.
Here is the link to the radio report from the interview she did with Dr. Qing Li : https://www.dw.com/en/living-planet-nature-bathing-in-times-of-coronavirus/av-53074393
