Impact of Vitamin D Deficiency

Many studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency increases the likelihood and severity of many respiratory virus infections. This has been shown both for Flu and COVID. I would like to inquiry to consider what difference attempting to treat the widespread vitamin D deficiency in Scotland would have made to the number of severe infections and deaths, and to consider ways this could have been done.

Why the contribution is important

By treating the ongoing vitamin D deficiency pandemic, we might have reduced the impact of the covid pandemic in Scotland. Further, the sooner we treat vitamin D deficiency, the fewer deaths in the future will occur due to respiratory viruses.
