Obese men are more likely to die from and suffer severe Covid than obese women, research has suggested.

Academics also discovered obesity may be a stronger risk factor for severe Covid pneumonia and the need for a ventilator in men than in women.

The authors of the study said men were more likely to suffer severe Covid at lower levels of obesity than women. .

The researchers were unable to determine why obesity had a stronger link to severe Covid in men than in women. .

People who are overweight or obese are more likely to develop severe Covid and die from it because they are generally less healthy and have worse immune systems.

Overweight people are more likely to suffer severe versions of these effects because their bodies are already struggling to cope as a result of the strain of carrying excess fat, hormonal and chemical changes triggered by obesity and higher rates of long-term illnesses like diabetes and high blood pressure. .

He added: 'Larger studies are needed before we can say with any certainty that class II obesity is less of a risk factor in women than in men.

Previous studies suggest being overweight can raise the risk of severe Covid by 40 per cent, while obese people are 70 per cent more likely to be hospitalised with the disease.
