Researchers at Trinity College Dublin in a study stated that vitamin D will reduce severe COVD-19 complications, but it is not peer-reviewed.The study by researchers from Trinity College Dublin, the University of Liverpool and the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) stated that after analysing European data on vitamin D and comparing it with current statistics on COVID-19, it was found that the highest infection and death rates had been recorded among the populations with low vitamin D but Professor Rose Anne Kenny, who co-authored the paper stated that currently there are no results that prove vitamin D beneficially affects Covid-19 outcomes.

According to a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across some countries by a team led by Northwestern University researchers published a study on 30 April 2020, which has not been peer-reviewed.

Vadim Backman, the Walter Dill Scott Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering said that Vitamin D will not prevent a patient from contracting the virus, but it may reduce complications and prevent death in those who are infected. He also added that the aspects need much more research to know how vitamin D could be used most effectively to protect against COVID-19 complications.

The World Health Organisation had said that there there are several ongoing clinical trials of both western and traditional medicines, but currently, there are no medicines that have been shown to prevent or cure COVID-19 disease.
