Vitamin D deficiency might play a big role in covid 19 survival . Researchers found a significant correlation between vitamin d levels in infected patients and survival rates .
The interesting thing is that vitamin D doesnt invoke an immune response ,but it protects from an overactive immune response a.k.a. cytokine storm ! The researchers say that it's actually the overactive immune response that kills the people! And thus a healthy vitamin d levels might lover the death rates by 50% .

IMO other substances that repress an overactive immune response should have the same effect.

Vitamin D levels appear to play role in COVID-19 mortality rates: Patients with severe deficiency are twice as likely to experience major complications

None of these factors appears to play a significant role," Backman said. "The healthcare system in northern Italy is one of the best in the world. Differences in mortality exist even if one looks across the same age group. And, while the restrictions on testing do indeed vary, the disparities in mortality still exist even when we looked at countries or populations for which similar testing rates apply.

"Instead, we saw a significant correlation with vitamin D deficiency," he said.

By analyzing publicly available patient data from around the globe, Backman and his team discovered a strong correlation between vitamin D levels and cytokine storm -- a hyperinflammatory condition caused by an overactive immune system -- as well as a correlation between vitamin D deficiency and mortality.

Cytokine storm can severely damage lungs and lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome and death in patients," Daneshkhah said. "This is what seems to kill a majority of COVID-19 patients, not the destruction of the lungs by the virus itself. It is the complications from the misdirected fire from the immune system."

This is exactly where Backman believes vitamin D plays a major role. Not only does vitamin D enhance our innate immune systems, it also prevents our immune systems from becoming dangerously overactive. This means that having healthy levels of vitamin D could protect patients against severe complications, including death, from COVID-19.

"Our analysis shows that it might be as high as cutting the mortality rate in half," Backman said. "It will not prevent a patient from contracting the virus, but it may reduce complications and prevent death in those who are infected."

Backman said this correlation might help explain the many mysteries surrounding COVID-19, such as why children are less likely to die. Children do not yet have a fully developed acquired immune system, which is the immune system's second line of defense and more likely to overreact.

I have taken about 10mg or so of K2 MK4 for at least 3 years now, daily. I take 50,000 units of D3 maybe once a week, sometimes more often.

All intakes of everything,of course the other fat solubles,in correct dosages.D 40IU raises serum 25(OH)D by 0.4ng/ml,so 10000IU should net you 100ng/ml,which is the upper limit of the reference range,but still reached by people with heavy sun exposure,and safe.So,with the UVR you get from the Sun,you can take 5000 to 7500 to 10000IU per day.
