Corona can easily spread to people over this weight ... Beware ...!

The number of deaths and deaths from coronavirus worldwide is increasing day by day. Many countries in the world are completely disabled by the impact of the corona virus. Several research studies have shown that people with basic medical conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, lung disease, heart disease, chronic respiratory disease and cancer are at high risk for coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

But did you know that coronavirus is also linked to obesity? Yes, according to the World Obesity Organization, obese coronavirus patients are at risk of becoming ill with the disease. Considering the high obesity rates around the world, it is expected that a large percentage of the population will be at risk of contracting the disease.

A total of 221 patients hospitalized with coronavirus infection, known as coronavirus or covit-19, were studied in China. 60 patients had comorbidities (one or more additional conditions), 68 patients had lymphopenia, and 25 patients had severe disease. The study found that acute illness was directly related to body mass index (BMI). This was greater than 28 kg / m2. The study was published in The Lancet Magazine.

Another study showed that adults infected with coronavirus, rhinovirus, metapneumovirus, and parainfluenzales were more likely to be hospitalized. This is because patients are overweight and obese than adults with healthy weight.

According to the NHS, if you have a BMI below 18.5, you are underweight. If the BMI is 18.5 to 24.9, that means you are healthy. If the BMI is between 25 and 29.9, you are called overweight and if you have a BMI in the range of 30 to 39.9, you are called obese.

Obesity weakens the immune system and increases inflammation. This makes it harder for your body to fight infection infections. Additionally, obesity puts more stress on the lungs. This further increases the risk of coronavirus problems. Obesity also causes other complications, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, slow metabolism, sleep apnea, heart disease and stroke, kidney disease and arthritis.

According to Johns Hopkins State University and Medicine, the total number of confirmed cases of coronavirus has reached 8,59,913, and the death toll has risen to 42,344 worldwide. According to data from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, there have been 1,718 positive cases and 52 deaths so far in India by the Kovit-19 virus.
