As smokers frequently put their hands to their mouths, they could face a greater risk of contracting Covid-19.
Evidence also suggests that smokers who contract Covid-19 go on to develop more severe symptoms as smoking affects the immune system and its ability to respond to infections.

Help Me Quit offers telephone and virtual support. Telephone 0800 085 2219 or text HMQ to 80818.
