A trial on COVID patients admitted to a hospital in Spain, given a form of activated vitamin D activated means the blood levels go up immediately as opposed to taking the supplement which can take a week to get the same levels. Of the patients taking the drug only 2% went to ICU and none died. Of those taking the same treatment without the Vitamin D about 50% went to ICU and two died . The care must be good as its usually far more.

You MUST take vitamin K2 supplements if you're regularly taking D. (D3)
You don't need that much K2. Genetics professor and nutrition expert Rhonda Patrick only takes small doses a couple times a week. I got the brand she uses on sale for about $8.00 U.S.

Not quite. If you live at the equator maybe you can go outside 15 minutes to get enough sun for vitD, but not as far north as I am in Iowa. Im not even sure eating meat is enough because im not sure there is all that much meat in meat these days given the pink slime situation. Also i found its often injected with saline. If you are going to take a vitamin d supp in any case, i would get it in liposomal form. I take Dr Mercolas from fresh thyme store but any reputable brand should be good.
The human body is able to produce as much as 10,000 IU to 20,000 IU of vitamin D3 in just 30 minutes

Keep in mind that this is not the vitamin D3 that you can buy at the store, which is Cholecalciferol. The casual observation made in this study was with Calcifediol or 25-hydroxyvitamin D. You can only get that with a prescription.
