Increasing data suggesting that Vitamin D deficiancy makes people more vulnerable to get sick from Covid19

There is increasing scientific data supporting the benefits of adequate Vitamin D consumption to increase health and help fight Covid19 illness according to a new article in the Guardian.

 

„Low levels of vitamin D, which our bodies produce in response to strong sunlight, may lead to a greater risk of catching the coronavirus or suffering more severe effects of infection, according to some studies. Last week, researchers in Spain found that 82% of coronavirus patients out of 216 admitted to hospital had low vitamin D levels“
