WHAT A PERSON ‘SUFFERING FROM OBESITY OR DIABETES’ SHOULD DO TO DEAL WITH COVID-19.
Obesity and associated co-morbid conditions such as type 2 diabetes enormously increase risk of Covid-19 complications and mortality.

So TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT CORONA

– Don’t touch nose, mouth, face without washing hands
– Wash hands frequently

– Do salt warm water gurglings or betadine mouth washes three times daily.
IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE REVIEW YOUR DIET AND EXERCISE
