Author: Alisa Yin / Category: News / Published: Apr-24-2020

New research is finding that if you smoke, you may be particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus. There isn’t any published research yet that reported the risk of COVID-19 for vapers, but some evidence suggests smoking can increase the risk of infecting coronavirus and having more several complications.

Additionally, several new studies in China, South Korea, and the United States suggest that smoking was found to more than double the risks of disease progression in people who had already infected the coronavirus.

The FDA made a second revision on its stance about the risks of COVID-19 and nicotine, now says cigarettes increase the chances of developing the coronavirus.

Earlier this month, the FDA had said smokers may have even serious outcomes from COVID-19 but hadn’t made it clear if it will increase the chances of catching the COVID-19.

Cigarette manufacturers, like Marlboro maker, said people should ask for advice from the governmental health authorities and medical professionals. “Nicotine and tobacco products are not risk-free, and the best thing anyone can do is to quit altogether,” says Corey Henry, the spokesman of the Philip Morris, “Those who do not quit smoking should consider to switching to cigarette alternatives such as e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products.”

So far, there isn’t much data that actually links the coronavirus infections to vaping history. But you should try your best to avoid vaping in the public place during coronavirus as the act of vaping means that your fingers may be in contact with faces or lips which increases the possibility of virus transmission from hand to mouth. You should also sterilize your vape kits carefully and regularly.

Since the COVID-19 curve has not flattened, the risk of getting infected is much higher. If you have ever thought about quitting smoking, now’s the time.
