Overweight and Covid-19
Everyone is working hard to learn more about the virus that has been strangling us for weeks.
After the SARS pandemic in 2002/2003, a lot of research has already been done, but because the SARS pandemic was resolved relatively quickly, the investigations were quickly discontinued.
Pharmaceutical companies were no longer interested because it was no longer commercially interesting.
But now everyone (again) is making every effort to conduct research. Not only about the how and why of the virus, but especially about a vaccine.
Little by little, information is trickling in about the behavior of the virus, and why some people are more affected by the virus than others.
Initial studies and statistics have already shown that 64% of people on IC, with proven Corona infection, are overweight. This result was not really a surprise, as previous studies had already shown that overweight people are more likely to have serious complications and death from infections in general, including a “simple” flu.
The researchers give three main reasons for this:
- Being overweight weakens the immune system, so that viruses and inflammation have free rein.
- Being overweight weakens the ability to breathe (short of breath) by putting more weight on the diaphragm. This creates a lack of oxygen.
- Obesity clogs blood vessels, hindering immune cells in their work to fight infection.
And all of this explains why the lungs of overweight people deteriorate faster when the corona virus strikes, compared to people with a healthy BMI.
