Being obese or heavily overweight increases the risk of death from coronavirus, according to a new report from Public Health England. Please feel free to download the report from the link below and share with someone you know who may benefit from this information.
Obese people are not at greater risk of catching the virus itself but are significantly more likely to become seriously ill and be admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU) with the virus compared to those with a healthy body mass index (BMI).
The risk of hospitalization, ICU admission and death grows as a person's BMI increases, the report found.
