Rami Chuene has taken to social media to react to claims that obesity increases the Covid-19 mortality rate.
The veteran actress feels that scientists are targeting obese people instead of finding a cure for the coronavirus. She slammed the "unnecessary observation" because it has not been scientifically proven yet.
The SowetanLive reported that some scientists claim obesity increases the risk of death if you contract the virus. However, some of them say this hasn't been proven yet.
Rami said the coronavirus doesn't care whether you're big or small as even "slenders from the catalogues" are also dying from the disease. The phrase is used in most parts of Mzansi to describe tall and slender girls.
"This is not the time to target obesity. #Covid_19 is killing everyone - left, right and centre, big or small, even the slender tsa macatalogue are being buried. What an unnecessary observation, especially if it hasn’t been ‘scientifically’ proven. Mxm."

Rami's followers agreed with her on this.
"They're running out of things to say. Instead of talking about the taxi drivers who don't want to follow regulations."
