Could Vitamin D play a role in protecting people from Covid-19?

Strategies to boost the UK population’s immunity to respiratory infections are urgently needed pending development of an effective vaccine for coronavirus. There have been recent debates as to whether vitamin D – the ‘sunshine vitamin’ – could play a key role in protecting people from COVID-19; however, definitive evidence on this is lacking.

The Fischer Family Trust is pleased to announce that it is co-sponsoring a clinical trial called CORONAVIT which will run for six months and involve more than 5,000 people to find out whether a ‘test-and-treat’ approach to correct people’s vitamin D deficiency during winter will reduce the risk and/or severity of COVID-19 and other acute respiratory infections.
