that politicians potential let many die that potentially potentially could have been saved by D for about $4.95 per person  ?

"the severity of clinical outcomes from COVID-19 and mortality were reduced in patients who were vitamin D sufficient."

https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0239799

one of series of studied indicating similar, the article quickly got under attack. 

But when decision under uncertainty should one not consider risk reward? or should we wait for final answer in 2035? Risk analysis from several studies of dose of several thousand IU is considered minimal to my knowledge..and good indications of positive benefits in relation to this. And D supplements have been used for likely hundreds of years (fish liver oil tradition is old in Norway in months ending R is old.).

sure in the fall people are more inside, share smaller air space, more likely to spread C19, but yes also D vitamin serum levels start fall in general population sep, oct, dec, jan, feb, mar......how high probability about its possibly positive effects do one need before it will be recommended?

Trust the gov. When Corona hit Norway, several health officials recommended against face masks (when not even having enough face masks to their own health care workers, that where desperate for face masks), when face masks got plenty available it was suddenly mandatory on much public transportation...

But we need facts and not just probabilities! Let's wait for the mandatory needle in your arse (vaccine), that they off course will "know" have zero side effects!

listen also to the Prof. bottom of the page of link!!

We got new rules this week, can max have 5 visitors private in Norway now. I was planning a party with ten, 5 women and 5 men. I unfortunately had to send out cancelations to the men now!

Australia was loosening on their corona restrictions now, spring there I guess!

here in the northern hemisphere we are going into a long winter it looks like! Stay safe, stay healthy, remember to keep distance! and get som sun!

Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one
Always onward, rode the six hundred
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Down the valley on their horses they thundered
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Ah, but once they're down, they really blundered
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Uh-huh, it was the Manfreds
Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one
The soldiers waited at the gate for weeks
(Five, four, three, two, one)
In a wooden horse, to the city they sneaked
(Five, four, three, two, one)
Pulled…

EU have now decided to give money to Norwegian researchers to develop a Covid-19 vaccine.

Excellent use of tax money? A bit late? Not exactly warp-speed? They probably sent applications many many months ago...

I lol'd.

California has new rules, too: an overnight curfew. If you lived here, you'd have to tell the women to either leave at 10pm or stay 'till 5am. Make the announcement at 10:15.
