Was Too Fat When Fighting Coronavirus: UK PM Boris Johnson After Losing 26 Pounds

Boris Johnson said he had a "nasty experience" with coronavirus(FIle)

London:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was too fat when he became gravely ill with COVID-19 and that he has since lost 26 pounds(11.79 kg).

"I have to admit the reason I had such a nasty experience with the disease is that although I was superficially in the peak of health when I caught it, I had a very common underlying condition - my friends I was too fat," he said in an online speech to his party conference.

"And I've since lost 26 pounds...and I'm going to continue that diet."
