Physical Fitness’s Role in COVID-19 Prevention

COVID-19 is a virus that attacks a person’s immune system. If your immune system is low, you are more likely to become infected with the virus, should you come into contact with someone who has it. While there are many ways to keep your immune system up, such as healthy eating and vitamin intake, physical fitness, and regular exercise has been proven to help build your immune system the best. Fitness gives you the best possible chance of fighting off illnesses. While many opt to react to the virus after getting it with doctor’s visits and prescribed medication, being proactive rather and using fitness to prevent illnesses is better.
