Dr.Smith, founder of The Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health, conducted a study on COVID-19 patients and found that of the 72 people in the study:
- 21 Were Pre-diabetic
- 34 were diabetic
- The Average BMI of all severely ill patients was 30.7
The more we see of this disease says Dr. Smith the more we see that severe rapid COVID Disease is found in diabetics, pre-diabetics, or people with a very high BMI.
