Follow up needed: Follow up with your GP will be needed in order to make any decisions regarding treatment going forward. All details matter, including current treatment, comorbidities and findings on exam. Vitamins may be beneficial in the recovery period and providing your intake has been poor.

COVID 19: If you were ill enough to require hospitalization - I would pose this question to your medical provider. Some people use supplemental vitamin C or D & Zinc. Please discuss wi your doctor. Take care.
