The increased rate of obesity always leads to higher mortality risk. Fitness and fat control are two different things but interlinked with a very strong bond. The World Obesity Foundation study research has shown results that there is a link between COVID-19 mortality and obesity. The obese people are more likely at risk as others.
The United States is at great risk with the higher obesity rate. The second unfortunate fact about the U.S is that it has the 9th highest death rate due to coronavirus. So, this is very important to find a solid solution. Obesity is a disease and it should be treated on time before the situation get out of hand.
