CAN WE REDUCE THE RISK OF COVID & OTHER INFECTIOUS DISEASES?

The world's first study into the link between exercise and COVID-19 immunity suggested people need to be doing thirty minutes of exercise a day, five days a week, (or 150 minutes a week), at an intensity that gets you at least slightly out of breath.


The study found that regular exercise reduces the chances of dying from infectious diseases such as COVID-19 by more than a third and makes people 31% less likely to catch the virus.


Recommended activities include walking, running, cycling and strengthening exercises.


Such physical activity can also make vaccines up to 40% more effective, an international team of researchers, led by Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), said.


The scientists concluded that the recommended amount of exercise can result in a "31% decrease in the risk of infectious disease such as COVID-19, a 37% decrease in the risk of death as a consequence of infectious disease such as COVID-19 and an increase in the efficacy of vaccination against viral disease such as COVID-19".
