But we knew that over 4 months ago, so why hasn’t it been publicised more?
I think there was a strong suspicion that it might but also concerns over if the data really told that story. People with vitamin D deficiencies were doing worse than those without but those with vitamin D deficiencies are also people who may not go out such as the elderly who were already susceptible to COVID. So it was a correlation does not imply causation thing. Remember at the start of this there was also the suspicion that ibuprofen would make COVID worse which turned out not to be true.

So they do a study and it turns out that, at least this time, there is evidence their suspicion is correct. Public Health authorities though are rightly wary of promoting health advice they aren't entirely convinced by.

Barbed wire round the doctors' surgery; Gestapo surgery front desk only capable of saying "No".

My mask shields me from other emitted particles; my plain galss spectacles reduces particle ingress to my eyes; hand gel galore. What's the big problem?

If the younger proportion run wild, they're not affecting the more vulnerable people who protect themselves sensibly.

And the Guvmin hasn't a clue what do do.

You won't get many old folk clapping for the Nhs who have abandoned them.

Re: Coronavirus

Vitamin D is a vitamin, there is no downside from promoting it. Yes topping up your vitamin d levels ensures your immune system is at 100% but it won't boost it beyond that
