ABSTRACT


COVID-19 is a new type of disease to watch out for because the spread of the outbreak is very fast. A weakened immune system often causes the virus to more easily infect a person, therefore there needs to be efforts in improving the body's immune system. Training is given to the general public who in this case are willing to be briefed online via zoom meeting. In this training, participants were given material about COVID-19 and how to process ginger candy.  The purpose of this devotion is to produce products in the form of ginger candy as an increase in body immunity in the pandemic period which can also be used as a new entrepreneur for the community so as to increase economic value. Ginger candy produced in this training chewy texture resembles jelly, has a sweet taste accompanied by a warm sensation derived from ginger. This training runs smoothly and has a positive impact based on post-test results that show an increase in the knowledge of trainees on how to process ginger candy that is beneficial for immunity in pandemic times.
