Obesity puts you at greater risk of serious illness or death from the virus, experts in England say.

Professor Robin Shattock, who is leading work on a coronavirus vaccine at Imperial College London, says it is crucial to have multiple
vaccines available, as his version moves to the next stage of its clinical
trials on Monday.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think we need
a series of vaccines so, while we talk about this often as a race, it is a race
where we need as many groups to get past the finishing post as possible because
when we think of things on a global scale, developing enough vaccines for seven
billion people is going to be too big a thing for any single group to do.”
In an update on the progress of his teams vaccine work, he said
the good news is that theyve seen very mild side effects, if any, adding
that the trial, which currently has 100 people enrolled, would be expanding to
six new centres to enrol another 200, with the maximum age of volunteers
expanded from 45 to 75.
