People Are Quitting Smoking Over Coronavirus Fears


More and more smokers say they're quitting due to fears of the coronavirus pandemic.

A UK survey found more than 1 million Brits have quit smoking in the last four months, and 41% said it was because of the pandemic.

Smokers are considered to be a higher risk for severe illness if infected with COVID-19 - some studies have found smokers are more than twice as likely to be hospitalized or even die.
