Yet another study is suggesting that a vitamin D deficiency may contribute to a person’s susceptibility to COVID. This one is a bit different because researchers tested Britain’s National Health Service workers for Coronavirus antibodies and levels of vitamin D.
The Daily Mail explains:
Further proof that vitamin D could protect people from coronavirus emerged today after another study found adults deficient in the nutrient are more at risk of catching the disease.
Seventy-two per cent of NHS workers who were lacking in the ‘sunshine vitamin’ also tested positive for Covid-19 antibodies — a sign of previous infection. This compared to just 51 per cent for those who had a sufficient amount.
The difference was even greater among those of a Black, Asian or ethnic minority, who may be more likely to have a deficiency because people with darker skin find it harder to obtain it from the sun.
