ABSTRACT

Background: COVID-19 is a viral disease that has high transmissibility and can cause acute respiratory distress and progress to the failure of several organs.

Case presentation: In this case report, we present the multifaceted scope of COVID-19, which affected a young adult patient, presenting grade II obesity as the only comorbidity. The case data indicate a relationship between comorbidity and the disease, including its prognosis and length of hospital stay. The COVID-19 infection behaved persistently. Obesity, as the only detected comorbidity, appeared to be a contributor to delayed recovery and discharge.

Conclusion: It is important to report cases about the new coronavirus so that the medical community can explore and deepen the experiences surrounding this disease. Future studies should point to concrete evidence regarding the relationship between obesity and COVID-19.
