What assessment has the Minister made of research conducted by Royal Society Open Science in November 2020 which recommends vitamin D supplementation for all of 20/25 micrograms daily, compared to the current Welsh Government guidance of 10 micrograms?

I am aware of the above research. An expert panel has been convened to review evidence and if any were to emerge that resulted in a change of advice on vitamin D supplementation to mitigate the risk of severe Covid-19 illness, the Welsh Government would change advice as appropriate. My officials are continuing to engage with the panel.
