The Czech Republic has one of the highest coronavirus death rates in the world.He wrote that scientists believe that the country’s population is overweight as one of the reasons Debord.
The Czech Republic ranks first in the world in the number of deaths from coronavirus infections. According to official statistics from the Czech Ministry of Health, from the beginning of the pandemic to mid-March, 27,918 people died or died of the crown. The tragic reality continues, with more than one hundred deaths every day. Professor Jan Konvalinka, Vice-Chancellor of Charles University in Prague, said: “Scientists estimate that the actual number of victims is one-third higher.”
Interestingly, the quality of healthcare in the Czech Republic is relatively high, close to the European average, and the standard of living is the second highest among post-communist European countries. So where do so many covid-19 deaths come from?
Most experts and analysts in the Czech Republic blame the process of the pandemic on the populist government led by the oligarch Andrej Babis. “In the case of blockades imposed by other countries, the Czech Republic has relaxed its measures. This happens after the summer vacation and before Christmas. The government is considering this issue again.” Czech Academy of Sciences TV.
Other causes of a large number of corona deaths are the ineffective control of existing pandemic control restrictions, insufficient surveillance of infected individuals, low numbers of tests, and the recent spread of more infectious and dangerous virus mutations.
Scientists believe that the overall unhealthy lifestyle of many Czech citizens also contributes to the high mortality rate. The EU has a per capita consumption of 200 liters of beer, ranking first in the world. The Czech Republic is also the leader in the prevalence of cannabis consumption among young people and ranks first in terms of the number of smokers.
In addition, it is obvious how to prove the health effects of being overweight when corona occurs. 57% of women and as many as 71% of men are overweight, which means that Czech citizens have once again become champions of the European Union. A few months after the pandemic began, the World Obesity Federation cited scientific research reports that showed a clear link between obesity and the risk of death from corona infection.
The lead author of the report, Dr., said: “We were shocked to find a link between the number of obese adults in the country and the number of deaths from covid-19.” Tim Lobstein (Tim Lobstein). Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) commented: “The link between overweight and mortality is clear and serious.”
Doctors in the Czech Republic also warned people that coronavirus infection may make them overweight. Ladislav Dusek, director of the National Institute of Health Information and Statistics, told Deutsche Welle: “Unfortunately, the Czech Republic has a record of the number of obese people in Europe.” “A percentage of corona patients are hospitalized. Eighty of them are obese.”
Martina Vasakova, director of the lung clinic at the Thomas Thomas University Clinic in Prague, told Czech Radio: “The hardest hit is obesity.” “Anyone can lose at least a little weight, but unfortunately Many people have gained weight.”
“Obesity usually greatly increases the risk of coronavirus infection,” said Jozef Cupka, a scientist who studies the problem. “When an obese person is sick, their risk of receiving intensive care is much higher. When they are receiving intensive care, the risk of death is much higher.”
According to Čupka, part of the problem is the measures to fight the pandemic, which have shown negative effects due to the prohibition of indoor sports and the increase in alcohol consumption and obesity. The restriction should be relaxed in mid-April, which will increase the chance of people losing weight due to spring weather. Czech doctors are also convinced: every kilogram is important in the fight against the crown.
