Increasing physical activity and fitness, as well as encouraging appropriate lifestyle habits and diet, may reduce obesity and its progression and promote a healthier immune system.

Abstract

Prevention of obesity and its progression is clearly urgently needed throughout the world. Increasing physical activity and fitness, as well as encouraging appropriate lifestyle habits and diet, may reduce obesity and its progression and promote a healthier immune system. In the meantime, during the COVID-19 pandemic, clinicians should recognize the markedly increased risk associated with obesity and the need for more aggressive triage and treatment in obese patients.
