Smoking and COVID-19

As a smoker, you or the people who care about you may be worried about a connection between COVID-19 and smoking. Scientists are still learning about the disease, but we know that:

But there is good news:

Soon after you stop smoking, your body begins to heal. Within the first few weeks and months, your lungs start to work better and your risk for a heart attack goes down.

No matter how old you are or how long you've been smoking, quitting smoking improves your health and adds years to your life.
