Breaking News ! A junior doctor has warned the majority of younger Covid patients being treated in a specialist unit at their hospital are overweight. Speaking to MyLondon last week, the doctor, who did not wish to be named, warned that coronavirus patients were getting "younger and younger". Fewer patients were being directed straight to intensive care than in the first wave, they said, but there was a high proportion of patients in the High Dependency Unit (HDU), where people can receive non-invasive ventilation. "To a degree things are under control, but it's a rapidly changing situation," said the doctor, who is based at a North London hospital. "More and more wards are becoming Covid wards.

. "People are younger and younger that are coming in, there are people in HDU in their 30s and 40s. We had one 24-year-old admitted to hospital with Covid recently. "The main factor in these 30 and 40-year-olds who are really unwell with Covid is that the majority of them are overweight."
