Is being overweight a bigger risk factor than smoking?

Data from overseas suggests that after age, obesity is the biggest risk factor causing more problems than smoking with coronavirus patients.

So why could that be?

On today’s show:

* What’s the NSW schools report all about?

* Queensland is reducing some restrictions. Why now?

* People are volunteering to be exposed to coronavirus to help test the vaccine. Is that a good idea?

* What is the role of obesity in serious outcomes from COVID-19?

* Why do I need a flu shot to visit my father in an aged care home?

* Are vegans and vegetarians the least affected by COVID-19?

And don’t forget to check out Dr Norman Swan’s «The Health Report» podcast for more on the issues around volunteering for the coronavirus vaccine.
