A new study which suggests that Coronavirus patients with high vitamin D levels have a better tendency of surviving the disease has emerged.

This new study conducted by Researchers from Northwestern University found patients with a severe deficiency are twice as likely to experience major complications and die.

However, they stated that observational evidence is still preliminary and caution against raiding the supplement aisles.

Similarly, a study from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam found countries with low vitamin D levels were also the countries with highest mortality and COVID-19 infection rates.

The research has been published online at medRxiv and has not yet been peer-reviewed, the process in which independent researchers scrutinise the study.

The research was led Vadim Backman, a professor of Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University, who said the study found vitamin could cut mortality rates in half.

He added that having high levels of vitamin D will not stop someone catching the virus, but may be able to reduce complications and prevent death.
