Now large scale studies like this one: https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2021/07/21/bjsports-2021-104203 are making it more obvious than ever the serious need to encourage exercise as a medically sound and important measure. “A study involving 100,000 subjects demonstrated the importance of exercise and physical activity in decreasing the risk of infectivity, severity and mortality of COVID-19”
*Exercise is medicine and it’s clearer than ever the desperate need we have to hear the medical community speak up.
Be well, be strong,
