Agency News

Smoking is one of the leading causes of death in the world, killing more than eight million people a year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Now, it is thought that smoking may also make people more vulnerable to developing serious complications if they catch coronavirus.

In the United Kingdom, the health secretary, Matt Hancock, has said: "It is abundantly clear from the research into previous coronaviruses that smoking makes the impact of a coronavirus worse."
