Quit for COVID

“COVID-19 is a respiratory infection which can cause life threatening damage to the heart and lungs. A small percentage of those contracting COVID-19 suffer serious symptoms or die, but the risks of COVID-19 rise with age, and for those with underlying medical conditions, many of which are caused, or made worse, by smoking. […] This is significant health information, which smokers have a right to know, and they need to be supported to take steps to quit or abstain from smoking.”
