Informal intervention trial in Myanmar


1200 Buddhist monks and nuns in COVID-19 quarantine center were given 2 doses of water containing

  • 200,000IU of vitamin D
  • 25 mg of zinc
  • 1000mg of vitamin C
  • 30 billion Probiotics.

Mortality rate is only 0.07%
The overall mortality rate in the country is steady at 2.1%

The doctors in the that country (as well as most other countries) do not believe in such large doses of Vitamin D
The Buddhist monks were not constrained by doctors beliefs

People in Myanmar are placed in quarantine centers if they test positive for COVID-19
The Buddhists have their own quarantine center (s?)
The Vitamin D water was given to every Buddhist in the quarintine center. not just given upon entry to the center
A total of about 300 people were tested for vitamin D level both before and after.
The initial level varied: mostly around 12-18ng/mL
  However, those monks who had gone out for alms (with head, shoulders, and feet exposed to the sun) had ~40ng/mL.


The vitamin D water given was based on a proposal by Vitamin DWiki

To reduce costs, the more expensive ingredients were not included
