Today (6/5/20) our main recommendation for Scottish Government and all Scottish health boards is:
1. Test all hospital COVID-19 admissions for vitamin D deficiency.
2. Give all old folk care home residents and their carers the NHS max safe dose of vitamin D:
100 mcg (4000 IU) daily

So, why not trying to get blood levels up? It is very safe! Might be life saver!
Average blood level in Scotland: 37nmol/l
Mild outcome of Covid-19: above 75 nmol/l
Researchers advise minimum 75 – 100 nmol/l
