16 March 2020: On Smoking
[Originally posted on Facebook]
Another PSA from your Friendly Neighborhood Scientist!
Global data suggests that no matter your age (20-yos are now on ventilators) that if you SMOKE or VAPE you are at risk of severe illness/death if you come in contact with this virus, especially if you are male (bc men in most countries tend to smoke more than women).
So, stop smoking and vaping. And don't get the virus, no matter if you will become quite ill nor not at all. Be safe. Stop the spread. ❤️
