On February 6, Italian media reported on a recent paper published in the International Journal of Obesity by a mainly Italian team, which revealed that obese COVID-19 patients are more likely to develop serious complications.According to the new Coronavirus study, the destruction of fat cells in patients with Novel coronavirus infection causes the fat thrombus to pass through the blood to other body organs, forming membranes in the lungs and causing severe respiratory dysfunction.Obese patients with Novel coronavirus infection, especially those with visceral obesity, are more prone to adipose inflammation caused by the death of fat cells, added Enzo Nisoli, a professor at the National University of Milan.The National University of Milan noted that Italian and French researchers reached this conclusion by conducting post-mortem studies of 19 COVID-19 deaths and 23 patients who died from other diseases.The International Journal of Obesity, founded in 1977, is a medical journal owned by Nature Publishing Group.Source: CCTV News client transferred from: Xinhua News client
