According to Dr Eugene Merzon, who is the head of Leumit’s Department of Managed Care, “The main finding of our study was the significant association of low plasma vitamin D level with the likelihood of Covid-19 infection among patients who were tested for Covid-19, even after adjustment for age, gender, socio-economic status and chronic, mental and physical disorders.”

He also added, “Furthermore, low vitamin D level was associated with the risk of hospitalization due to Covid-19 infection, although this association wasn’t significant after adjustment for other factors.”

After studying the findings of the study, the researchers had concluded that “low plasma 25(OH)D level appears to be an independent risk factor for COVID‐19 infection and hospitalization.”
