For the study, the researchers examined existing health literature to check average levels of vitamin D among citizens of 20 European countries, and then compare these figures with the relative numbers of deaths from the novel coronavirus in every country.

The statistical test showed a convincing correlation between the figures where populations with lower than average concentrations of the vitamin also featured more deaths from COVID-19.

Nevertheless, such studies almost always have some problems only pointing out that some kind of relationship might exist. As, for example, people who tend to have higher vitamin D levels in the body might have something else helping them resist the virus.
