Introduction: COVID-19 disease is more prevalent and severe in people who are more likely to be deficient in vitamin D, people with obesity and diabetes mellitus, and people who live in higher latitudes. Materials and methods: The study was an ambispective, analytical, observational study conducted at a tertiary care teaching hospital in New Delhi, India. The study population consisted of adults with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19. Results and conclusion: Eighty eight patients diagnosed with COVID-19 between February and July 2021 were enrolled, with mean (SD) age being 40(2) years and there were 55 (62.5%) males. The most common co-morbidities were hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the most common symptoms were fever, cough, and myalgia. Twelve (13.6%) patients had severe disease. Seven (7.9%) patients died. Sixty one (69.3%) patients had vitamin D levels <30 ng/mL and had severe disease, more symptoms, and increased oxygen requirement, but did not affect laboratory parameters and mortality.
