The OCTA Research Group, composed of professors from University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas, estimates that COVID-19 cases in the Philippines will reach 380,000 to 410,000 by the end of this month.
The study also found that infected men were more deficient in vitamin D levels than the female counterparts.
The study, which was published Tuesday in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, found that the majority of patients being treated for COVID-19 at a hospital in the northern city of Santander suffered from a deficiency of vitamin D.
Regeneron continues to enroll other types of patients for trials and its enrollment in non-hospitalized patients as well as hospitalized patients requiring either no or a low level of oxygen has been backed by the independent data monitoring committee.
More than 80 per cent of COVID-19 patients at a hospital in Spain had a vitamin D deficiency, according to a new study.
However, it is important to point out that the conclusions of this study are correlative, not causative - meaning that it can't be concluded from this work that vitamin D deficiency was directly responsible for a higher chance of being hospitalized with Covid-19.
Vitamin D controls blood calcium concentration and impacts the immune system, the researchers said.
Ronaldo left out of Juventus squad against Barcelona
Morata saw two efforts ruled out either side of Messi dragging wide at the other end after some smart play from Griezmann. The 35-year-old Ronaldo, the top scorer in the history of the competition with 130 goals, was furious at missing the game.
The study's authors were particularly interested in studying vitamin D because they said there's evidence to suggest it plays a role in COVID-19 infection.
Despite its importance, vitamin D deficiency is common, with one study from 2011 estimating that 41.6 percent of US adults are deficient. One study finds patients lacking vitamin D are twice as likely to develop a severe coronavirus infection.
How vitamin D affects coronavirus risk and severity has been of interest to researchers and health professionals since the beginning of the pandemic.
The cocktail, which has been erroneously called "Regeneron", is now in a series of tests including for patients with COVID-19 that are now hospitalized.
Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to health concerns including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and multiple sclerosis. The inflammation of the toes caused due to the coronavirus or COVID-19 can lead to purple or red skin, swelling, and blisters.
That's compared to the 26 patients who did not receive the supplement, 13 of whom were admitted to the ICU and two of whom died.
