„Bewegung in Zeiten der Corona-Pandemie“

This short video explores the topic of exercise and physical activity during times of pandemic. Scientific studies have already revealed that this pandemic saw an increase in physical inactivity among the population. For example, there has been a decline in the intensity of physical exercise among children and young adults in particular. Inactivity can have both short- and long-terms consequences for our health, which is why it is important to get regular exercise and stay active even during pandemics. The video offers examples of how young and old can stay active – even during pandemics. The video contains contributions from Prof. Hajo Zeeb, Dr. Mirko Brandes, and Dr. Heide Busse from the Leibniz Institute for Prevention Research and Epidemiology – BIPS.
