Never has it been more important to consider quitting smoking.
Smoking affects the immune system in the airways, lung tissue and throughout the body. This reduces your natural protection against infections, like coronavirus.
This means that if you smoke:
you have an increased risk of getting acute respiratory infections
you have a greater risk of the infection lasting longer
you have a greater risk of the infection being more serious than it would be for someone who does not smoke.
