On March 6, 2020, UCSF’s Stanton A. Glantz, PhD, Director of the Center for Tobacco Research Control & Education, published an article called “Reduce your risk of serious lung disease caused by corona virus by quitting smoking and vaping.”
In the article, Dr. Glantz states that “When someone’s lungs are exposed to flu or other infections the adverse effects of smoking or vaping are much more serious than among people who do not smoke or vape.”
He goes on to say in closing that “This would also be a good time for cities, states private employers and even individual families to strengthen their smokefree laws and policies – including e-cigarettes — to protect nonsmokers from the effects of secondhand smoke and aerosol on their lungs and to create an environment that will help smokers quit.”
