People must be active whether there is an epidemic or not: WHO

The Corona epidemic cannot be an excuse for not exercising enough. People must be active whether there is an epidemic or not. The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday.

The agency warns that even before the epidemic, many had very little physical activity. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has said in an update on its physical activity that exercise is important for physical and mental health. The consequences of inactivity can be terrible.

Rüdiger Krech, head of the agency’s health promotion department, told reporters that the WHO was urging everyone to remain active at this time of the Covid-19 epidemic.

“We can create another epidemic of illness from not being active,” he said.

It is to be noted that gymnasiums including lockdown and movement control are being kept closed in the country to control the epidemic. As a result, many people have to stay at home and their daily lives have changed. However, there is no clear information about its effect on physical activity.
Meanwhile, the head of the organization, Tedros Adhanam Gabriasis, said in a statement that physical activity is very important for health and well-being. It will be helpful to connect life with life year after year and year after year.

Note that regular exercise is helpful in controlling heart disease, type two diabetes, and cancer. It also reduces fatigue, anxiety, and keeps the brain energized.
