Israel’s Coronavirus National Information and Knowledge Center revealed Monday that vitamin D deficiency might be linked to an increased risk of contracting COVID-19.
According to the center’s report, published Monday and reviewed by the Jerusalem Post, research studies have shown a circumstantial link between vitamin D levels and the risk of contracting the novel coronavirus. Despite the lack of a known causal relationship between the vitamin and COVID-19 risk, the center still recommends that people take vitamin D supplements.
Following the publication of its report, the Coronavirus National Information and Knowledge Center launched a communications campaign to inform the public about the benefits of vitamin D.

Social media giant Instagram is promoting images of obese people in the name of ‘body positivity’ while refusing to accept healthy eating ads which include photos that show people with well toned bodies.
Fitness guru Alex Feinberg tweeted about the issue, noting that an ad campaign for weight loss that showed images of his successful dieting program was blocked by Instagram.
The reason given was that the promotional material, “uses images that excessively focus on a person’s body or any given body part,” and that this “can make users feel bad about themselves, and goes against our core value of fostering a positive global community.”
Feinberg then compared the refusal of his ad to an image of a morbidly obese woman who has over 500,000 followers, which Instagram did not relegate in its algorithm.
“Instagram boosts this chic to over 500K followers and won’t let me advertise pics with my shirt off Because it “can make users feel bad about themselves” The end is nigh folks,” tweeted Feinberg.
The US is already the most obese nation in the world, and thanks to the “Quarantine 15” it is about to get even fatter.
According to a new report in Obesity Research and Clinical Practice, roughly 22% of Americans (based on sample extrapolation) said they gained between five and ten pounds since the coronavirus lockdowns (“within those who gained 5–10 pounds, there was a significantly higher percentage of the total sample who reported they increased eating in response to sight and smell, eating in response to stress, and snacking after dinner compared to those who stated they did not change those behaviors at all.”)
In a separate poll of more than 1,000 U.S. readers of WebMD, 34% of respondents said they’d gained weight “due to COVID restrictions.”
A man in China was hospitalized earlier this month after he suffered a collapsed lung due to jogging while wearing a face mask.
The man, known as Zhang Ping, 26, who lives in Hankou, at first ignored the difficulty he was having breathing and continued to run, encouraged by other runners he also saw wearing masks.
However, after running another 500 meters on May 7, Zhang required hospitalization following severe respiratory and chest issues.
“In the hospital, after related examinations, Zhang Ping was diagnosed with spontaneous pneumothorax, the left lung was severely compressed by 90%, and the heart was pushed to the right,” reads a report from the Wuhan Central Hospital.
