    Exclusive: emerging evidence studied to see if ‘sunshine nutrient’ could lower Covid-19 risk

    A delayed Public Health England review into the reasons why BAME people are disproportionately affected, which pointed to historical racism, did not review the role of diet and vitamin D.

    I think the role of vitamin D in support of the immune system and in particular of viral diseases like COVID-19 is well established. It would be of particular importance in the UK to begin with, and then among BAME people, who are even more at risk.
