A new review, published by Public Health England in advance of the government’s ‘Better Health’ campaign launched today, considers some of the data and discussions which have started to emerge around the relationship between obesity and COVID-19. Expert opinions on the review were invited by the Science Media Centre and include comments from our Director Prof Sir Stephen O’Rahilly, who recently published on the topic with Sam Lockhart (see below). The Centre provides expert advice and evidence on issues relating to science in the media.
