According to a new major study by the BMJ  Nutrition, Prevention & Health journal, following a diet could help reduce the severity of COVID-19, according to a new major study. They investigated the link between the disease and different dietary patterns.

The study tracked down more than 2,3000 healthcare workers from six different countries with high indexes of COVID-19.

The participants were asked to complete an online survey over two months and provide information on demographic characteristics, dietary information, and COVID-19 outcomes.

From them, they were 568 positive cases – 138 respondents reported moderate to severe COVID-19 severity; 30 individuals had very mild to mild COVID-19 severity.

After analyzing the data it was observed that participants following diets and plant-based diets or pescatarian diets had 73 percent and 59 percent lower odds of moderate-to-severe COVID-19 severity, respectively.

Those following low carbohydrate, high protein diets had greater odds of moderate-to-severe COVID-19.
