Scientists said that a lack of vitamin D leads to an increased risk of contracting the coronavirus. They found that in order to prevent COVID-19, it is necessary to maintain the required level of this vitamin in the body.
Researchers from the University of Birmingham (UK) were able to prove that taking vitamin D (when it is lacking in the body) will help prevent infection with coronavirus infection.
Scientists have analyzed blood samples from nearly 400 doctors. They checked for the presence of antibodies to COVID-19 in their bodies. In addition, the researchers looked at the deficiency of vitamin D. During the study, scientists found that doctors who contracted the coronavirus suffered from a lack of this vitamin. This was written by medRxiv.
Scientists from Boston University School of Medicine have shown that patients with coronavirus who have normal levels of vitamin D in their blood are less likely to experience complications such as cytokine storms. Writes about it Lenta.ru.
