Retrospective 433 patients in the UK, 52 positive for COVID-19, showing no significant difference in mortality based on vitamin D levels. Authors also include results for all 433 patients, however given the expected test false negative rate compared with the very high number of COVID- patients, and the large difference in outcomes, it is likely that many of those patients did not have COVID-19. The adjusted results are only provided for vitamin D as a continuous value, where the most adjusted model for COVID+ patients shows lower mortality for higher vitamin D levels (not statistically significant).
This is the 96th of 199 COVID-19 sufficiency studies for vitamin D, which collectively show higher levels reduce risk with p<0.0000000001 (1 in 835,162 vigintillion).
risk of death, 42.9% higher, RR 1.43, p = 0.71, high D levels (≥25nmol/L) 12 of 42 (28.6%), low D levels (<25nmol/L) 2 of 10 (20.0%), COVID+ patients.

Background The role of vitamin D in increased mortality with SARS-COV-2 virus, namely, COVID-19, remains uncertain. We analysed all the patients who were treated as COVID-19-positive with or without a positive swab and were tested for vitamin D levels. Methods This was a retrospective, study involving 1226 patients swabbed for SARS-CoV-2 between the 10 February 2020 and 1 May 2020 at two hospitals of East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. Patients who were swabpositive for COVID-19 or treated as COVID-19-positive on clinical grounds even though swab results were negative were included in this study. We analysed the association of vitamin D levels and mortality, assessing linear and non-linear associations. Results A total of 1226 patients had SARS-CoV-2 RNA swabs in this period with age range from 1 year to 101 years. A cohort of 433 of these patients had swabs and recent vitamin D levels anytime in the previous 3 months. Mortality rates were not found to be associated with vitamin D levels (OR=1.04, 95% CI 0.96 to 1.12). Conclusion Our findings suggest similar mortality risk from COVID-19 irrespective of the levels of vitamin D. Larger prospective studies will be needed to confirm these findings.
