    People over 6ft have double the risk of coronavirus, study suggests

    “ People who are over 6ft tall have more than double the chance of being diagnosed with Covid-19, a survey suggests.

    An international team of researchers, including experts from the University of Manchester and Open University, surveyed 2,000 people in the UK and US to look at whether personal attributes, work and living practices might influence transmission.

    The team found taller people are at higher risk, which scientists say suggests coronavirus is transmitting through the air because height would not make a difference if people were contracting it exclusively through droplets. ”

                Not really good research. There are a number of factors that put tall people at risk. Being tall historically was advantageous in order to protect oneself in battle. That is no longer the case. The taller the person' the greater the stress on the heart. Tall people and obese people have a greater risk of heart disease and complications. Tall people are more likely to get managerial jobs because the look authoritative, they will interact with more people. These alone will add to the risk factor.

                It will help, as does lying down when you have high blood pressure.
