Often people ask this question, ‘why do fit people also get COVID?’
We are constantly told that COVID affects obese people more. COVID is worse if you lead a sedentary life. You should eat healthy diet to beat COVID. Yes, all this is true. So why do people who do everything right, also fall prey to COVID? People have asked this question after Akshay Kumar and Milind Soman were found to be sick with Corona Virus.
Milind Soman has given a reply to this question. Milind said in a social media post, “People still ask me how I got infected if I am so fit. Fitness and health, if good, will help you deal with the virus so that you are not sick, but can’t stop you from getting infected. Anybody can get infected. Not everybody infected will get sick….People ask me why I talk about health so much when some people don’t have food to eat. I say if you don’t have health, nothing else matters very much. Health is seldom a question of time or money. Most of the infections and hospitalizations in the second wave are from high rises, not slums….To be healthy you need to be aware. And you need to make at least 10% of the effort you put into your job. Or your social life….Take care. Stay safe. Om shanti.”
The way COVID is destroying our country right now, it has made some things very clear. We now know what are the important things in life and who are the important people in our lives. It has helped us in correcting our priorities.
