Why you should stop smoking during COVID-19

After the government highlighted the risks to smokers from COVID-19, Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) has joined health professionals in calling on smokers to #QuitforCovid.

Smoking and COVID-19

In the time of the coronavirus pandemic, taking action to protect and improve your health is particularly important.

Smoking causes damage to the lungs and airways and harms the immune system, reducing your ability to fight infection. Smoking is also very harmful to the cardiovascular system (the heart and the blood vessels that carry blood around your body), which has many negative impacts on health including increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

COVID-19 is a disease caused by a respiratory virus, SARS-CoV-2. People who smoke generally have an increased risk of contracting respiratory infection and of more severe symptoms once infected.

Stopping smoking will bring immediate benefits to your respiratory and cardiovascular health, including if you have an existing smoking-related disease. Overall it will also help to reduce the use of NHS services.

This echoes the advice of the Chief Medical Officer who said: 

“If you are going to give up smoking, this is a very good moment to do it.”
