Vit D supplementation for the vulnerable and stop lockdown

It's been proven around the world that those with reduced Vit D level are much more vulnerable to Covid 19. The Scottish Government should be spending resource on making sure the population especially the vulnerable are supplementing. Vit D testing not Covid testing should be being carried out to identify those most at risk. All lock downs should be lifted immediately as current hospital admissions and deaths are no more than would be expected as we head into the Autumn. Using dodgy PCR test results to create fear in the population is not what I would expect of a responsible Government.

Why the contribution is important

A proper risk analysis will show that more deaths are now inevitable from the affects of lockdown than from Covid 19 itself. These include late diagnosis of cancer/heart conditions, suicides, mental health issues. An immediate return to normality is required for the benefit of the health of the nation.

    Agree too. Did vitamin d deficiency co tribute to the large numbers if deaths in care homes?

    Boosting immune systems against coronovirus with vitamin D and C with zinc also is a must!!

    I agree, vitamin d supps for all. Health would greatly improve.

    It has really annoyed me that there has been no messaging around healthy living and how to boost the immune system. And to make matters worse, keeping people locked up in their houses has the opposite effect too!

    Vitimin D should be given free to all children as a matter of course from birth as it is in Republic of Ireland. We need a vitamin D awareness campaign to inform the public of the importance of Vitimin D in general health including Covid 19 and in MS.

    This is easy for people to do on their own, they don’t need government intervention. Vitamin D tablets are cheap and available at every supermarket and chemist. Taking vit D has been recommended in winter for people in northern areas for many years so the information is out there. Some things are surely just personal responsibility.
