Vitamin D deficiency may cause immune dysfunction. Therefore Novel_Sars-viruses have an easier time causing respiratory injury.
“A greater proportion of vitamin D-deficient individuals with SARS-CoV-2 infection turned SARS-CoV-2 RNA negative with a significant decrease in fibrinogen on high-dose cholecalciferol supplementation.”
to paraphrase the authors: “If vitamin D does, in fact, reduce the severity of COVID-19 then supplements would offer a relatively easy option to decrease the impact of the pandemic.”
Wearing masks, and social distancing is critical to slow down the spread until vaccination becomes available. PIIS2214109X20305106
It appears that one of the reasons that we have not been able to control the Covid-19 epidemic in the US is because we move too much. If we just stop traveling and socializing and wear a mask, we can ( and should have been able to) curb the exponential growth and spread of the virus. As of the publication of Blog, there are over 246,000 deaths in the US due to the Coronavirus. Lancet Infection disease, Published a study: “Association between mobility patterns and COVID-19 transmission in the USA: a mathematical modeling study.” It provides additional information on how social distancing is s important in the control of this very deadly and real epidemic.
The information of how safe we need to maintain to avoid COVID-19 transmission needs to be studied in detail. Eventhough virus RNA was found on surfaces, none were thought to be able to transmit disease. The larger droplets traveled farther compared to the smaller droplets. This was due to the increase drag on the smaller droplets. “Breathing out, singing, coughitng and sneezing generated warm moisr high momentum dropplets. These travel faster that the typical backgrund air ventilation flow.”
Low-cost measurement of facemask efficacy for filtering expelled droplets during speech shows surprising results
