COVID-19 mortality risk correlates inversely with vitamin D3 status, and a mortality rate close to zero could theoretically be achieved

This article used a meta-analysis of two independent sets of data. One analysis is based on the long-term average vitamin D3 levels documented for 19 countries. The second analysis is based on 1601 hospitalized patients, 784 who had their vitamin D levels measured within a day after admission, and 817 whose vitamin D levels were known pre-infection. Both datasets show a strong correlation between the death rate caused by SARS-CoV-2 and the vitamin D blood level. At a threshold level of 30 ng/ml, mortality decreases considerably.Results of a systematic review and meta-analysis-recommends raising serum 25(OH)D levels to above 50 ng/ml to prevent or mitigate new outbreaks. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.09.22.21263977v1.full-text
