On the 17th March, UK Health Secretary, Matt Hancock warned us that smoking could exacerbate the effects of COVID-19. He said,
“It is abundantly clear from the research into previous coronaviruses that smoking makes the impact of a coronavirus worse.”
Many media articles and public commentators, especially in the US, have tried to link smoking to smoking in their recommendations, but there is no evidence that they take similar risks with COVID-19.Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos has done an in-depth study of the available research or lack thereof. He said.
“There is no evidence that e-cigarettes have any effect on coronavirus infectivity or disease progression, and we cannot rule out the possibility that the use of propylene glycol may have some beneficial effects.”
Therefore, the advice from health experts is much the same as the previous advice, because e-cigarettes are far less harmful than smoking, and if you are trying to quit, give e-cigarettes a try.
