 I am happy to see some British parliament members pick up excellent working papers!

Vitamin D and COVID-19: Is There a Lack of Risk/Reward Understanding Among Health Authorities?

not a cure, but a good risk/reward in addition to other stuff...  


little and late, but they are starting to wake up https://www.bbc.com/news/health-55108613
 
Serious topic and good work in pushing the discussion forward.

A search on SSRN revealed a nice study of the literature - the original paper was originally written in May, posted in August, and updated in October. Perhaps helpful sources here.

Abstract:

A Basic Review of the Preliminary Evidence that COVID-19 Risk and Severity Is Increased in Vitamin D Deficiency

and concludes:

"The literature review also found that prophylactically correcting possible vitamin D deficiency during the COVID-19 pandemic is extremely safe. Widely recommending 2000IU of vitamin D daily for all populations with limited ability to manufacture vitamin D from the sun has virtually no potential for harm and is reasonably likely to save many lives."
I'm not even going to click the link. Already the two sentences make several unscientific statements which made me cringe. What it is? Some lame big pharma propaganda?
