Are you a smoker?

Well, I’ve got some bad news for you.

As per the new study conducted by the British medical journal Thorax, if you get infected with the covid-19 virus, its outcome can be devastated for you.

This study was conducted and observed on 400,000 people who contracted with the COVID-19 virus.

Their latest study to find the correlation between smoking and COVID-19 deaths concluded with these shocking findings where people who currently smoke and get covid are 80% more likely to be hospitalized.

Not just, smoking also increases their overall chances of dying from the virus.

Even though, the researchers did say that current smokers are not at higher risk of facing a confirmed COVID infection.

Earlier when the COVID-19 pandemic was in its early days, many experts theorized that smokers face a less severe infection after catching the virus.

Now, after the latest study by British Medical Journal Thorax, it would be interesting to see the same expert would react to this.

That’s all for now.

Before I conclude, I’ve got a question to ask – Would you quit smoking after this study? Do let us know in the comments section given below.
