If you are worried about coronavirus and trying to quit smoking to reduce the risk of complications, we can help you by providing virtual stop-smoking sessions.
Dr Nick Hopkinson is a respiratory consultant and, in a video posted on Fresh, says quitting smoking is an important way for individuals to reduce their risk of complications from coronavirus because smoking increases the risk of lung infections. You can watch the full video below.
Research in the journal Nature shows that lungs have a “magical” ability to repair some of the damage caused by smoking if you stop smoking completely. Evidence shows that in those who quit smoking, up to 40% of their cells looked just like people who had never smoked, even when a patient had smoked a pack a day for 40 years!
