Obesity partly blamed for Covid deaths

Britain’s high Covid-19 death rate is partly the result of obesity,  according to a report described by the World Health Organization as a “wake-up call”.

The World Obesity Federation’s report found that thousands of deaths in Britain could have been avoided if “negligent” governments had acted on the nation’s weight. In Britain 64% of adults are overweight(!)- including 28% who are obese – the fourth-highest in the world. (World Health Organisation).

My comment:  It‘s mostly about the size of food intake, amd it’s unhealthy nature.  Too much fast food, sugary snacks? Exercise would help, but it is the amount and nature of the food that matters most.
