A new study from Kaiser Permanente Southern California of 50,000 people who developed COVID had some striking findings: People who exercised for 10 minutes or less each week ended up hospitalized because of COVID at twice the rate of people who exercised 150 minutes a week—and were 2.5 times more likely to die. The researchers noted that being sedentary (something you can do something about) was the greatest risk factor for severe COVID beyond being elderly or an organ recipient (which you can’t change).
