The World Health Organization (WHO), has warned that smoking can increase ones chances of contracting the coronavirus.

In a tweet on its verified handle, WHO warned that experts have said smokers with COVID-19 are likely to have more serious conditions that could lead to death.

WHO also said Tobacco lobbyists have tried to manipulate COVID 19 policymaking to get tobacco shops listed as essential & offer free delivery of tobacco products to people in quarantine and warned that smokers likely face more severe symptoms if infected, leading to hospitalizations & premature deaths.
