Vitamin D and COVID-19
Dr Arup Halder
Abstract: Though the SARS-CoV-2 is also known as ?novel? coronavirus, we don?t have any novel drugs for treatment or prevention of this disease. The only drug which has shown proven benefit in reducing the mortality is steroid, though the timing of application is key to get an optimal outcome. While this is used in a proven COVID patient in dysregulated immune stage, we still do not have any drug which can prevent the infection. Though many of the drugs are being proposed to modulate the immune system and thus can reduce the severity of the disease. One of such drug is Vitamin D. Here in this article we will try to look at Vitamin D and COVID relationship.
