Are you getting enough vitamin D?

Dr Arwa Ahmed Al-Modwahi from the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre explains why this is especially important during this current time due to the role the vitamin plays in our body, in particular our immune system. We also find out how much we need and where else we can get it from apart from the sun.
