Fitness Fights Covid-19

Parent Interventions

Improving fitness level may be one of the ways to protect oneself from Covid-19, according to a study of 2690 adults in the age group of 49 to 80 by the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lane School of Public Health. However, doing exercise or running once in a while won’t help. It was observed that low to moderate exercise had an impact on resisting Covid-19. The routine must include a cardio intense workout, one where you break a sweat or are breathing heavily. The greatest benefit is in moving from inactivity to some consistent amount of physical activity. Overexercising can also weaken the immune system. World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended 5 hours per week as optimum for physical fitness.
