The Register: Healthy 32-year-old offered COVID-19 vaccine because doctors had him down as 6.2cm tall with BMI of 28,000. “The problem was that due to his supposed stature, [Liam] Thorp had a body mass index (BMI) of 28,000. A BMI of 40 is enough to be classed ‘morbidly obese’ so you can imagine that the UK’s health service was concerned. The heaviest person ever weighed in at 635kg/1,400lb/100st and only had a BMI of 186.”
