UK PM plans to put nation on obesity-busting diet: report

Jun 29, 2020 19:19 IST

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is planning to put the country on a diet as part of a wider strategy to counter obesity, seen as a major risk factor in those impacted by coronavirus. 'The focus will be on getting the nation fitter because, as the coronavirus has shown, it will save lives,' a health department insider told The Sunday Times. The proposals include better access to programmes ranging from family exercise schemes and healthy eating to bariatric surgery, which includes the fitting of gastric bands. In the UK and US, more than 60 per cent of adults are overweight or obese, a UK doctor told PTI.
