PHE: Obesity increases risk of dying from Covid-19

Carrying excess weight increases the risk of hospitalisation, admission to intensive care, and death from Covid-19, according to Public Health England (PHE).

PHE's Chief Nutritionist Dr Alison Tedstone says "it's too early to understand why obesity is interacting with Covid-19” but added that excess weight "puts more pressure on the body which makes it harder to fight infections".

The crippling effect of coronavirus within communities

Data obtained by ITV News has revealed the crippling impact coronavirus is likely to have on towns and cities across the UK. With the full winding down of the furlough scheme by October, more than seven per cent of the UK's workforce could be unemployed by the end of the year, according to the Bank of England. But forecasts by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation predict the potential peak unemployment rate of up to 21% in some areas across the country by the end of 2020. According to the organisation, the likeliest hardest hit areas include coastal towns, traditional Labour voting areas of the West Midlands and Northern England and suburban London boroughs.
