Obesity = high risk of death from Covid-19

Surprise, surprise. Who would have though so:

That’s been known for some time. Obesity is a condition that causes elevated levels of systemic inflammation which sets the stage for the uncontrollable cytokine storm that kills Covid patients.

Another thing they are finding in very overweight and obese Covid patients are low vitamin D levels. a fat soluble vitamin which has a long and well documented track record in immune system modulation, it takes a lot of vitamin D to get levels up when there is a lot of body fat. Low vit D levels seem to be a common denominator in Covid deaths. Although there are no large double blind studies underway, which is a mystery to me. I guess it’s easier to push dog dewormer as a miracle cure
