Abstract

COVID-19 is a raging pandemic with cases, hospitalizations and deaths surging. Prevention has focused to date on mask wearing, social distancing, and the development of vaccines. Novel mitigation strategies, however, are needed to combat the pandemic optimally.
There was an epidemic of inactivity in 2020 partially because of government recommendations to stay indoors and the mandated closure of gyms. Vitamin D deficiency is also a common worldwide problem, especially for persons of color. These two issues are contributing to the severity of the pandemic and should be addressed.
