RT New: The risk of severe #COVID19 illness rises sharply with elevated body mass index, especially for people younger than 65, a new @CDCMMWR finds. Learn more: https://t.co/rVBv59ZeCp. https://t.co/a1cr9o7uMy --
It's nice when health goals for general health and those for preventing bad outcomes from the pandemic align. Helping people maintain health weight could decrease the toll of COVID-19 by decreasing hospitalization, ICU admission and death https://t.co/qSS4
