Who are the most vulnerable to COVID-19? The immunosupressed. Who are the immunosuppressed? The elderly (70+), the young with underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer, etc and those with SCD of all ages.
Folks with SCD are predisposed not just to COVID-19 but to infections of all sorts for a number of reasons, the major one being a dysfunctional spleen. Spleen dysfunction in SCD starts very early in life. By the age of seven, many children would have had their spleens surgically removed. By the onset of adolescence, the spleen has either shrunk to non-functional or irreversibly lost its usefulness. Without a functional spleen, resistance to bacterial infections and viruses is very low.

Dr. David Abia-Okon, Medical Director, Lindabel Medical Centre, Surulere, Lagos trained in Europe. He instinctively distrusts alternative medicine of any sort and was combative when he first learnt of the ‘effectiveness’ of Jobelyn. Convinced after administering the supplement to a Jehovahs Witness child whose parents sturdily refused blood transfusion, Dr. Abia-Okon now preaches Jobelyn to his medical colleagues nationwide.
‘If you have SCD and you wish to mount a defence against coronavirus,’ he says, ‘increase your intake of Jobelyn.’
Jobelyn, made from sorghum bicolor, is one of the most scientifically-investigated phytoceuticals in the world. Study after study corroborates its effectiveness as an adjunct in the treatment and management of diverse health conditions. As for sickle cell anaemia, clinical studies at Nigerian universities suggest that regular intake of Jobelyn eliminates the need for regular and intermittent blood transfusion. More than its blood-restoring action, it is also a veritable immune-booster.
‘If you have SCD and you wish to mount a defence against coronavirus, increase your intake of Jobelyn.’
Taking Jobelyn alone, however, may not shield you from the coronavirus – or any illness of any kind if you do not observe the following regimen alongside:
Good Nutrition: Dr. Abia-Okon says periods of pandemics or epidemics call for an increase in food intake to strengthen immunity.
‘In relation to SCD, you must eat more healthy foods and drink more water,’ Dr. Abia-Okon advises.
Exercise: a sedentary lifestyle does not augur well for improved health at any time and under any conditions. Exercise specialists contend workouts tailored to one’s age and health status can help boost immunity and reduce the chances of falling ill.
Mental Attitude: a positive and optimistic mental attitude is required to overcome the misinformation, the disinformation and the half-truths and untruths being dished out about a virus humanity is seeing for the first time. Mental resilience is as important about immune-boosting as food and drink.
Night’s Rest: 7 to eight hours’ sleep for adults with SCD. More for children and adolescents.

Meanwhile, Jobelyn is fast disappearing from the shelves of pharmacies across Nigeria. The reason is two-fold.
First, lockdown and movement restrictions across Nigeria have significantly slowed down the delivery of the supplement to major distribution arteries. Second, the demand now far outstrips supply as those who already know of the supplement stock several months’ supply at home. In turn this has jerked up the price 25% at many stores in Lagos and over 40% ex-Lagos.
