In this study, no patients died who received this IV therapy. So, what is this seemingly miraculous new drug?

Intravenous Vitamin D (Calcifediol)

In this study, patients admitted to the hospital were divided into two groups. One group received standard of care treatment and the other standard of care plus IV vitamin D (iv form is calcifediol). Of the fifty patients treated with IV D, only 1 (2%) were later transferred to the ICU and none died! Compared to twenty-six untreated patients of which 13 later went to the ICU (50%) and 2 died (7.69%).

If you go back to our posts starting n March/April, you will see that there was data coming from around the work suggesting low vitamin D as a cause of severe COVID-19. I have been wanting a randomized trial ever since, here it is, and wow! This is a game-changer. And it is cheap and readily accessible.
