Smoking


Smoking increases the chances of getting lung and respiratory disease.  The Secretary of State for Health said "It is abundantly clear from the research into previous coronaviruses that smoking makes the impact of a coronavirus worse".  This was echoed by the Chief Medical Officer's advice that "If you are going to give up smoking, this is a very good moment to do it".
