Helping people get fit to fight COVID-19

If you do catch COVID-19 being as fit and healthy as you can be will help limit the impact it has on you. The NHS and our partners are working to help those most at risk get fit to fight COVID.

COVID-19 is serious. It can take people months to recover. That could be months of discomfort and months off work. In the worst cases the virus is a killer.

Make a change and get fit to fight COVID

The fitter you are, the better you can fight off COVID-19. Even small steps are worth taking; and it’s worth taking that first step now.

Things we should all consider doing:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Losing weight
  • Eating healthy food
  • Getting active
