Snippet from FEMERAID International Air Rescue as of 11 February 2022
The Air Rescue Team of FEMERAID International informs all our members, Knights and Dames of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Federation of the Autonomous Priories (KMFAP) about the followings:

A study recently published by Galilee Medical Centre in Israel has found a link between patients with low level of vitamin D and severe COVID-19 disease. According to this research, there is a remarkable and striking difference between patients suffering from a serious illness who have low vitamin D levels, and patients who maintained normal levels of the same vitamin.

Patients with a vitamin D deficiency were 14 times more likely to have a severe or critical case of COVID-19. In addition, the mortality rate for those with insufficient vitamin D levels was 25.6%, compared with 2.3% among those with adequate levels.

These results underscore the value of taking vitamin D supplements during the pandemic.

Keep safe!
