Tom Brady took to social media on March 27 to offer tips on how to stay healthy during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a video posted by the NFL on its official Twitter page, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ new quarterback offered immune-boosting tips as COVID-19 cases in the U.S. surpass 104,000.

The video came a week after Brady was announced as the new Buccaneers QB after ending his 20-year run with the New England Patriots, with four Super Bowl MVPs and six Super Bowl wins.

“I hope we’re all staying home and staying safe but hopefully we’re also staying active too because we’ve got to give our body what it needs at this time to support a healthy immune system,” Brady stated in the video.

He encouraged people to stay hydrated while eating nutrient-dense vegetables. He added that it was important to consume vitamin C and zinc as a way to support the immune system.

Brady's message falling in line with the organization's push to help U.S. citizens to fight the disease.

The six-time Super Bowl champion noted that it was just as important to monitor what you put into your body as well as how you treat your body.

Brady went on to say, “Get your rest and recovery. Get on a regular schedule and at last we got to stay active for at least 30 to 60 minutes a day.”

Brady finished the social media video with a supportive message, “I know we’re going to get through this together.”

At the moment, legendary quarterback emphasized why football is seen as America's game.

Later on, he replied to the NFL's tweet by writing, "We are going to solve this one day at a time! My thoughts are with you all!!"

His message received a mixed reaction, with some Patriots fans still be bitter over him leaving.

One fan tweeted, "So many things wrong with that sentence."

Another fan tweeted, "The goat speaks and so shall it be! Positive energy!Comradery!We'll make it through the other side."

Brady's new team may have divided fans, but the inspirational message came through.

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to spread globally, the sports world (including football) has come to screeching halt.

Earlier this week, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued a memo to all the teams and players that all club facilities are ordered to stay closed for at least two weeks as a way of social distancing.

The NFL draft will still move forward as planned with the dates of April 23-25 still following usual festivities, with one exception this year will not have public events.
