Today we’re going to talk about the cheapest potential COVID-19 therapy in the world. What we’re talking about is the sun, and what it can do to give you vitamin D. Of course, this is actually free, all you have to do is go out and get 20 minutes of sun.

Somalian immigrants make up a very small community in Stockholm, Sweden. They make up less than 1% of the entire population of Stockholm. Yet, in Stockholm, 40% of all of the COVID-19 deaths were from this small group.

What puts people at risk for COVID-19?:
• Pre-existing health problems (obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, COPD, asthma)

This group didn’t have many of these problems, and they weren’t all over the age of 60. But, what they do have is darker skin. The melanin that changes the color of the skin—protects against UV. But, it also prevents the absorption of vitamin D. In Chicago, 72% of deaths due to the coronavirus were African American.

The Somalian group also has a dress code that requires them to be almost fully covered, which can prevent vitamin D absorption.

It has also been found that the great majority of COVID-19 deaths were in the Northern hemisphere. This could be related to the distance between where you are and the sun, and how much vitamin D you’re going to get.

Looking at more factors:

Seasonality—
Certain viruses are seasonal. This could have something to do with less vitamin D, temperature, and humidity.

Vitamin D is a very powerful immune modulator—
It directly regulates a lot of different parts of the immune system.

An Indonesian study—
In this study, the mortality rate was much higher in the group that was deficient in vitamin D than the group that had normal levels of vitamin D.

Vitamin D is very anti-inflammatory—
It could help reduce the cytokine storm, which can be deadly.

Vitamin D is anti-thrombotic—
It helps prevent blood clots.

Pre-existing conditions—
People with the pre-existing conditions that could cause complications with COVID-19 typically also seem to have a vitamin D deficiency.

Age—
The older you are, the less vitamin D you have.
