A few hours of sun per day gives you more than enough vitamin D I read ?

But, yep, when I see the prices of them vitamin D "supplements" in the pharmacy here, there sure is a great business going on !

 

Not for everyone. I too have a Vit D deficiency and every few months my doc puts me on a high dosage. I get my prescriptions free now as I am over 60 which is helpful. But whether it would affect my chances of getting or fighting C19, I have no idea. 

For me the best way, is to try and avoid catching it by keeping my distance from maskless crusaders, who want to invade my personal space.

Info for the skeptic(s)...

Taking a Vitimin D supplement is not just a good way of guarding against severe Covid-19.

Adequate Levels of Vitamin D Reduces Complications, Death Among COVID-19 Patients

https://www.bumc.bu.edu/busm/2020/09/25/adequate-levels-of-vitamin-d-reduces-complications-death-among-covid-19-patients/

Hospitalized COVID-19 patients who were vitamin D sufficient, with a blood level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D of at least 30 ng/mL (a measure of vitamin D status), had a significant decreased risk for adverse clinical outcomes including becoming unconscious, hypoxia (body starved for oxygen) and death. In addition, they had lower blood levels of an inflammatory marker (C-reactive protein) and higher blood levels of lymphocytes (a type of immune cell to help fight infection).

. . .

Vitamin D sufficiency, a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D at least 30 ng/mL reduced risk for adverse clinical outcomes in patients with COVID-19 infection - Published: September 25, 2020

https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0239799

The hospital data of 235 patients infected with COVID-19 were analyzed.

Results
Based on CDC criteria, among our study patients, 74% had severe COVID-19 infection and 32.8% were vitamin D sufficient. After adjusting for confounding factors, there was a significant association between vitamin D sufficiency and reduction in clinical severity, inpatient mortality serum levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and an increase in lymphocyte percentage. Only 9.7% of patients older than 40 years who were vitamin D sufficient succumbed to the infection compared to 20% who had a circulating level of 25(OH)D< 30 ng/ml. The significant reduction in serum CRP, an inflammatory marker, along with increased lymphocytes percentage suggest that vitamin D sufficiency also may help modulate the immune response possibly by reducing risk for cytokine storm in response to this viral infection.

I would think somebody in "near dead" condition as he claims, would have other priorities than making a video for his local newspaper....

So I take this fine piece of English newspaper "reporting" with a huge pinch of salt. Have a look at their homepage .....gives an idea of the level of that local rag.

It usually costs me at least one LD to have my personal space invaded. 😀

Thats why nowadays, I adapt to the general level and post only meaningless shit .....

 

You could always seek out another forum where you might find shit that is meaningful to you and adheres to your level. 

Good luck with that.

Not only airlines suffering during the pandemic. These are empty cruise liners at anchor in Bournemouth bay. Apparently there are 15 or 16 of the things between Southampton and Weymouth/Portland.

Considering those are floating care homes in normal times I can't see people queuing up to get on board for a long time.

 A serious (US) football fan....

Ohio woman tased after she refused to leave a middle school football game for not wearing a mask

An Ohio woman was tased and arrested for refusing to leave a middle school football game after police say she refused multiple requests to comply with school policy to wear a mask while watching the game.

Alecia Kitts was in the stands watching her son's football game in Logan, Ohio, on Wednesday when police say a school resource officer asked her to wear a mask. She refused, saying she had asthma. Logan police said Officer Chris Smith told her that if she didn't put her mask on, she would be asked to leave.

In a news conference yesterday, Gov. Mike DeWine said Kitts was told that if she had asthma, she could get a face shield and come back for the game.

"The female continually refused his request and Officer Smith advised her that if she refused to leave, she would be cited for trespassing and escorted off the property," the Logan Police Department said in a statement on Facebook...

"After several attempts to get her to leave, Officer Smith advised her she was under arrest for criminal trespassing and asked her to place her hands behind her back multiple times and she refused."

Video from the incident shows Kitts shouting, "Get off of me! You're not arresting me for nothing. I ain't doing nothing wrong! What the f--- is wrong with you, people?"

The video did not capture the initial confrontation.

Police say Smith tried to place her hand behind her back and Kitts resisted.

"Officer Smith advised her to comply or he would deploy his Taser if she did not quit resisting. She continued to resist, and Officer Smith placed his Taser on her shoulder area and drive stunned her once," police said....
