Vitamin D deficiency in COVID-19 quadrupled death rate
The ongoing evidence of the important role Vitamin D plays in our bodies’ defence against viral and bacterial infections
Dr Robert Malone: “”COVID-19 mortality risk correlates inversely with vitamin D3 status, and a mortality rate close to zero could theoretically be achieved at 50 ng/ml 25(OH)D3: Results of a systematic review and meta-analysis”
Vitamin D status appears to be strongly associated with COVID-19 clinical severity. After COVID-19 confirmation, Vitamin D level should be measured in all patients and curative plus preventive therapy should be initiated.

PHILLIP DAY’S RESEARCH SUMMARY ON VITAMIN D Research shows the unequivocal benefits of vitamin D both in the prevention and treatment of cancer as well as rickets and other diseases. Lack of, and fear of sunshine, combined with processed, cooked diets has become the to-date, undeclared catastrophe of modern times. The Vitamin D Council writes:
“Technically not a ‘vitamin’, vitamin D is in a class by itself. Its metabolic product, calcitriol, is actually a secosteroid hormone that targets over 1000 genes in the human body. Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more. Vitamin D’s influence on key biological functions vital to one’s health and well-being mandates that vitamin D no longer be ignored by the healthcare industry nor by individuals striving to achieve and maintain a greater state of health.”
