Study says physical activity reduces risk of death by Covid by 43%

Maybe you don’t know it yet, but there is an important relationship between physical activity and Covid-19. It is not news to anyone that the coronavirus has totally changed the way of living on the planet. After all, it is a new virus, highly infectious and capable of killing. Therefore, the disease soon became one of the biggest problems faced by humanity.

Two and a half years after the first case, findings about the virus continue to be published. According to a scientific analysis published by the British Journal of Sports Medicine, regular exercise tends to lessen the effects of the disease. The study compiled approximately 15 studies on the relationship between physical activity and Covid-19.

The authors reveal that regular physical activity is able to slightly reduce the risk of infection. However, the main finding was that the hospitalization rate dropped by 36%, while the death rate dropped by 43% among those who are not sedentary. So, if you exercise routinely, your chances of developing a serious condition of Covid-19 are much lower.
