Exercising Regularly May Protect You Against COVID-19 Hospitalization

Exercising Regularly May Protect You Against COVID-19 Hospitalization. A new study, published in the ‘British Journal of Sports Medicine,’ has found a correlation between physical activity and the severity of COVID-19 symptoms. The study found that out of 48,440 Californians, those who were most active before falling ill were least likely to be hospitalized or die. . The most active were made up of those who exercise for at least 150 minutes a week. . That means regular exercise, such as swimming, biking, running or walking, can substantially protect against severe cases of COVID-19. . People in the least-active group, less than 10 minutes of exercise a week, were hospitalized due to COVID-19 at twice the rate of the most-active group. . That least-active group was also found to be 2.5 times more likely to die. . I think, based on this data we can tell people that walking briskly for half an hour five times a week should help protect them against severe Covid-19, Study Lead Dr. Robert Sallis, via ‘The New York Times’. Dr. Sallis, who led the new study, stressed the importance of getting vaccinated. . A 2020 study found that better fitness was tied to an enhanced vaccine response.
