Routine physical activities are related to a lower risk of extreme Covid-19, according to a new study published on April 13, 2021. The Kaiser Permanente study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, examined nearly 50,000 adults with Covid-19. According to the report, people who followed the US Department of Health and Human Services’ physical activity requirements — at least 150 minutes of moderate to intense physical activity each week — had significantly lower rates of Covid-19 disease hospitalization, intensive care unit (ICU) admission, and death. With the benefits of daily exercise, following these recommendations will help minimize the severity of Covid-19 symptoms. Acute Covid illness is one of the harmful effects of being inactive, which has been linked to heart disease, obesity, diabetes, stroke, and some cancers. The following risk factors for extreme Covid-19 have been reported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: advanced age, male gender, and diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. This new study’s findings pushed inactivity to the top of the list.
