Vitamin D has been demonstrated to be a potent stimulator of mechanisms associated with pathogen clearance. Given its recognized efficacy against viral infections, the role of vitamin D supplementation during SARS-CoV-2 infection has been a subject of intense debate. This study aims to contribute to this ongoing discourse through the application of a qualitative phenomenological mathematical model, explicitly considering the role of vitamin D and its interactions with the innate immune system. We demonstrate that the influx and degradation of vitamin D may serve as potential control parameters for disease assessment and recovery.
