Description

Researchers at Stanford just published two of the most fascinating studies to date linking overweight/obesity with higher risk for severe COVID.

These related but different studies both find COVID (SARS-CoV-2) directly infects fat cells (concentrating virus) and cranking blood sugar and inflammatory processes. The findings have important public health implications if we're serious about saving lives.
