J Infect Dev Ctries. 2023 Feb 28;17(2):188-193. doi: 10.3855/jidc.17109.


COVID-19 has been affecting millions of people worldwide and becoming a global public health burden. Therefore, exploring treatment options is essential to help flatten the curve and reduce hospitalization time. This is a case series of ten COVID-19 patients in Jakarta and Tangerang, Indonesia, who received a high dose of vitamin D and glutathione supplementation daily. Within 5-7 days of treatment, all patients were confirmed COVID-19 negative. To date, this is the first report from Indonesia describing the potential benefit of supplementing vitamin D and glutathione concurrently in improving clinical conditions and expediting the recovery time of COVID-19 patients.
