A new batch of clinical research by Health Testing Centers examined data from the past eight months of coronavirus research. The researchers managed to narrow down key indicators that could impact the overall mortality rate of the coronavirus. The scientists found that people who have a vitamin D deficiency will have a much harder time neutralizing the coronavirus.

Additionally, the researchers found that if you have diabetes, you have a higher risk of coronavirus mortality due to the uncontrolled sugar intake that can impair immune function. On top of that, the researchers found that zinc levels could be one of the most reliable predictors of COVID-19 patients. The study states, "Zinc is believed to primarily aid the immune response by halting viral replication, cutting off the viral infection's spread at the source."

Risk factors:

  • People with darker skin pigmentations
  • Elderly
  • Individuals with a BMI over 25
  • People with liver or kidney disease
  • Patients taking certain pharmaceutical drugs like anti-seizure medications and HIV/AIDS therapeutics

Top 6 clinical markers for COVID-19:

  • Vitamin D level
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Inflammation levels
  • Zinc levels
  • Iron levels
  • Genetic predisposition
