Is obesity in patients younger than 60 years a risk factor for COVID 19 hospital admission?

Research from the USA has shown that among those aged under 60, obesity was twice as likely to result in being admitted to hospital for coronavirus. The findings also suggested that being obese significantly increased the likelihood that the person would need intensive care as well.
