Found a new way to protect yourself from coronavirus

The effectiveness of the method has been scientifically proven at the University of Birmingham.

Scientists at the University of Birmingham in the UK have proven that taking vitamin D with its deficiency can be a way to protect against infection with coronavirus. They found that health workers who isolated themselves after developing symptoms of COVID-19 were more likely to suffer from vitamin deficiency. This is reported in an article published in the medRxiv Preprint Repository. .

The researchers analyzed blood samples of 392 health workers for the presence of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 and vitamin D. 55 percent had antibodies to coronavirus, and 61 percent had vitamin D deficiency. Those who had a deficiency were more likely to report symptoms such as scrapes, body pain or fever. This indicates that vitamin D deficiency increases susceptibility to the virus.

Earlier, researchers at the University of Boston School of Medicine found that patients with normal blood levels of vitamin D infected with coronavirus have significantly fewer severe cases and fewer deaths. Vitamin D deficiency can help prevent complications such as a cytokine storm.
