Vitamin C at 1000mg/day/Zinc at 50mg/d and vitamin D at 2000-4000IU/d have been cited as helpful in avoiding and resisting severe disease with Covid. Given the newness of the germ, we have no long term confirmation but initial reports support their use.

Vaccination is effective in preventing disease from Covid.
