Deficiency of Vitamin D found in 80 per cent of Covid-19 patients, reveals a study. The findings reveal that 80 per cent of patients hospitalized in Spain who are in a critical situation due to the virus are deficient in sunshine vitamin. The study also finds that majority of the people under treatment from the virus had vitamin D deficiency as well.

Around 216 Covid-19 patients and 197 healthy individuals in a hospital in Spain were examined as part of the new study published in Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The severity of the disease was critical in those 80 per cent of people deficient in vitamin D. The study also revealed that among the patients; men had lower levels of vitamin D in their body than women.
