According to a CNN report, on Monday local time, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated in a video posted on his official Twitter that earlier this year when he was admitted to hospital for intensive care due to contracting new coronary pneumonia " Excessive weight".
He said in a video released on Monday: "I have always wanted to lose weight. I think many people are struggling with weight just like me."
Johnson said in the video that since he recovered from the new crown pneumonia, he has been running with his dog Dilyn every day, and enthusiastically talked about the benefits of weight loss to individuals and the protection of the social interests of the British National Health Service (NHS).
The video was released at the same time that the British government launched a strategy to reduce obesity. According to data from the British government, 63% of British adults weigh more than healthy weight, and about half of them are obese.
It is also worrying that one-fifth of children aged 10-11 are obese, and children living in poor areas are twice as likely to be obese as children in other areas. A policy document issued by the British government on Monday pointed out that during the current COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of obesity is associated with COVID-19.
In the past few months, we have seen that being overweight or obese puts people at a higher risk of death from new coronary pneumonia. The policy document specifically pointed out "the influence of excess fat tissue on vital organs such as the heart, lungs and liver."
The British government hopes that this policy will encourage people who are currently overweight to lose 2.5 kilograms, and claims that it "can save NHS 105 million pounds in the next five years."
The policy includes a wide range of measures, from requiring restaurants to indicate calories on their menus to prohibiting advertisements and promotions of unhealthy foods on televisions and stores.
Johnson claimed that these measures will help people across the UK lose weight. He said: "I hope it is not in an overly bossy or nanny way."
