Many elderly patients with COVID-19 are at risk of mal-nutrition .
Vitamins are of two types, Lipid soluble vitamins and water-soluble vitamins . Lipid soluble vitamins can be stored in the body while water soluble vitamins cannot be stored in the body, hence needed to take regularly . Vitamin D is a lipid soluble vitamin also it can be synthesized by our own body.
