A TREATMENT FOR LOCKDOWN MANIA: Is Vitamin D a Silver Bullet? Mikko Paunio, a Finnish epidemiologist, suggests an alternative to lockdowns: encourage everyone to take vitamin D supplements.
I consider it scientifically proven that high levels of vitamin D provide both protection against severe COVID-19, but even more importantly there is strong evidence that high vitamin D levels slow markedly virus circulation and might even provide ‘herd immunity’ to populations, according to a study published a month ago. It is as yet non-peer-reviewed but already can be considered a milestone study. It is a remarkable matched case control study of 52,405 COVID-19 cases and 524,050 matched controls picked up from Clalit Health Services (CHS), which provides comprehensive health services to over 4.6 million members in Israel.
