Could copper supplements build immunity or help with fighting COVID-19?

 Many vitamins and minerals play a role in the immune system. Mega-doses of any one vitamin or mineral can be dangerous and will not prevent or treat COVID-19. No research has shown that using any supplement protects against COVID-19. Copper supplements have not been shown to prevent or treat COVID-19.
