Fat-Released Exosomes May Offer Clues to COVID-19; Adipose Tissue May Be Source of Inflammatory Factors That Aggravate COVID-19; Adipose Tissue of COVID-19 Patients Develop Syndrome Similar to Cachexia, Wasting Disease Seen in Cancer, Other Diseases

There is growing evidence that adipose tissue plays a key role in the aggravation of COVID-19. One of the theories under investigation is that fat cells (adipocytes) act as a reservoir for SARS-CoV-2 and increase viral load in obese or overweight individuals.
