Regular Exercise May Help Protect Against Severe Covid

People who tended to be sedentary were far more likely to be hospitalized, and to die, from Covid than those who exercised regularly.

More exercise means less risk of developing severe Covid, according to a compelling new study of physical activity and coronavirus hospitalizations. The study, which involved almost 50,000 Californians who developed Covid, found that those who had been the most active before falling ill were the least likely to be hospitalized or die as a result of their illness.

... the least active group exercising for 10 minutes or less most weeks; the most active for at least 150 minutes a week ... People in the least-active group, who almost never exercised, wound up hospitalized because of Covid at twice the rate of people in the most-active group, and were subsequently about two-and-a-half times more likely to die.
