image for Boris Johnson Says Brits Must Lose Weight to Fight COVID-19

Around two thirds of adults in the U.K. are overweight, and half of that group are in turn considered obese, the paper said.

The U.K. has the world’s third-highest death toll from COVID-19 with almost 46,000 virus-related deaths as of Monday.

“I’m only about 5 foot 10, at the [most], and, you know, I was too fat.”

If all Brits who are overweight lost 5 and a half pounds, the policy paper found, it would save the NHS $135 million by 2025.

Johnson said the campaign would “help people a little bit to bring their weight down –– not in an excessively bossy or nannying way, I hope.”.

Commentators in the U.K. have expressed surprise that Johnson had championed a national weight loss campaign.

Before becoming prime minister, Johnson published several columns arguing against health-related policies of previous governments on the grounds that they intervened too much in people’s private decisions. »
