Any physical activity that meets these recommendations will also help reduce the severity of Covid-19 symptoms. Acute Covid illness is only one of the many harmful consequences of sedentary activity, which is linked to heart disease, obesity, diabetes, stroke, and some cancers. To date, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have established the following risk factors for extreme Covid-19: advanced age, male gender, and underlying comorbidities such as diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Many of the risk factors listed are difficult to minimize, if not impossible, so facing them may be challenging for individuals. The findings of this new research, on the other hand, may push inactivity to the top of that list.
