Low-level vitamin D in blood plasma may raise the risk of contracting COVID-19. It appears to be associated with the possibility of hospitalization.

Low vitamin D status is also associated with other non-communicable diseases and increases susceptibility to infectious disease, mostly upper respiratory tract infections.
