Since the start of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) pandemic, several studies have linked obesity with severity of illness as well as mortality in patients with COVID‐19. Outcomes of patients with overweight or obesity, who develop critical illness, have been studied extensively over the past decade where the studies have shown conflicting resul...
