A New Study Reveals How Drinking Wine And COVID Are Related
A recent study by the UK National Health Service and reported by Wine-Searcher, revealed that moderate wine consumption was associated with a reduced risk of contracting COVID-19.
The study found that those who do not drink at all were more likely to be infected with COVID-19, while those who drink liquor had no more or less chance of contracting the virus.
People who drank 14 glasses of red wine or fewer per week were 10 to 17% less likely to get COVID-19. The same number of glasses of fortified wine reduced the risk by 12%.
Those who drank white wine or Champagne were up to 8% less likely to get COVID-19. However, the figures describe correlative patterns rather than the causative effects of alcohol.
