Since January 2020 Elsevier has created a COVID-19 resource centre with free information in English and Mandarin on the novel coronavirus COVID-19. The COVID-19 resource centre is hosted on Elsevier Connect, the company's public news and information website. Elsevier hereby grants permission to make all its COVID-19-related research that is available on the COVID-19 resource centre -including this research content -immediately available in PubMed Central and other publicly funded repositories, such as the WHO COVID database with rights for unrestricted research re-use and analyses in any form or by any means with acknowledgement of the original source. These permissions are granted for free by Elsevier for as long as the COVID-19 resource centre remains active.
Conflict of Interest The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. Highlights  Growing evidence indicated the critical impacts of vitamin D (VD) in prognosis of COVID-19 patients.  Significant associations were disclosed for some of the SNPs with severity, signs, symptoms, and coexisting pathologic conditions.  VDR gene polymorphisms might thus allow the prioritization of those at greater risk for COVID-19.
