The influencing factors which to prevent the viruses or to make less severe forms of the disease could be the supplements with vitamin D and Zn, the effects of vaccination against the viruses and the healthy food. Today, the food consumed by people, is usually extremely refined, containing micronutrients such as minerals or vitamins, in a very small amount or no longer have these nutrients. As a consequence, people will experience increasing deficiencies in vitamins and minerals, depending on their daily diet. Thus, most people  consume highly processed foods or fast foods that contain additives. The creation of such a food habit can give great deficiencies in terms of food intake with antiviral or anti-inflammatory potential, without people knowing their vitamin D or Zn deficiencies. The determinations of vitamin D, under chromatographic specific and reproducible conditions were obtained from EDQM. Acetonitrile, n hexane and tetra-hydroxy furan. Determination of Zn content was obtained by the dithizone spectrophotometric method. The foods analysed by vitamin D were: fish oil, sardines, tuna in oil, sturgeon, swordfish, salmon, pink salmon, mushrooms, cow's milk, yogurt, soy, almond. rice milk, boiled eggs, cereals and orange juice which were fortified. The most important content of vitamin D (250 mcg / IU) was found in fish oil, then in mushrooms (6.1 mcg / IU) and in the milk with 3.5% fat. The highest zinc content was found in oatmeal (3230 mg / kg) and in legumes containing 3045 mg/kg and green beans containing 2920 mg/kg. The experimental recommended some healthy diets to promote the increase of the immunity of the human organism, rich in the vitamin D, with admissibility limits of this, between 400 IU(10 mcg) for children, 600 UI(15mcg) for adolescents, adults and 800 IU(20 mcg) for people over 70 years old.
