Vitamin DEFICIENCIES in poor urban areas and coronavirus

We know that in many poor urban areas, there are no real grocery stores (thus the term 'food deserts'). And we know that African Americans have been hit the hardest by the Coronavirus pandemic. After reading an article in The Guardian about a link between the most critical Coronavirus patients and vitamin k deficiency, I have to wonder if that would explain the high ratio of African American deaths from Coronavirus.

1. Fascinating

I take Vitamin K every day with Vitamin D drops. After seeing this article I'll keep doing that.

Thank you for posting!

2. Wow, I think I'm in good shape:

Vitamin K is found in spinach, eggs, and hard and blue cheeses. I eat these abundantly. I will look for a supplement, however. I do take a methylated B-12 vitamin, D, and C daily.

5. You may want to take the Vitamin K1 as the K2 is not water soluble. nt

3. I knew that there had to be a better explanation for the ratio

4. D3/K2 along with Vit C would really help!
