The WOF team, based on mortality data from Johns Hopkins University and the World Health Organization (WHO), claims that of the 2.5 million deaths from coronavirus, 2.2 million were in countries with high rates of obesity. In this regard, WOF experts urge governments to make vaccination of obese people a priority and provide them with vaccinations in the first place - this can save them from death.

Also, experts found that mortality from covid increases in parallel with the prevalence of obesity. For the study, data from 160 countries were used. The WOF report was timed to coincide with World Obesity Day, which is celebrated on March 4.

Earlier, experts from the Ministry of Health reported that people with endocrine disorders - diabetes, obesity, adrenal diseases - are at risk and die from COVID-19 more often than others.
