Zinc and Vitamin A Deficiency Predisposes to the Need for Intubation and ICU Admission in Patients With COVID-19. An Observational Study
Source   PDF   Share   Tweet
Retrospective 120 hospitalized patients showing zinc deficiency associated with a higher ICU admission rate (61.8% vs.29%; p = 0.002) and a higher rate of intubation (87.5% vs. 12.5%; p = 0.002).

Berrocal et al., 10/26/2020, retrospective, preprint, 7 authors.
risk of death, 44.8% lower, RR 0.55, p = 0.23, treatment 5 of 31 (16.1%), control 26 of 89 (29.2%).
risk of ICU admission, 53.0% lower, RR 0.47, p = 0.003, treatment 9 of 31 (29.0%), control 55 of 89 (61.8%).

Effect extraction follows pre-specified rules prioritizing more serious outcomes. For an individual study the most serious outcome may have a smaller number of events and lower statistical signficance, however this provides the strongest evidence for the most serious outcomes when combining the results of many trials.

Elimination of COVID-19 is a race against viral evolution. No treatment, vaccine, or intervention is 100% available and effective for all current and future variants. Denying the efficacy of any method increases the risk of COVID-19 becoming endemic; and increases mortality, morbidity, and collateral damage. We do not provide medical advice.
