The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn smokers face a higher risk of suffering life-threatening COVID-19 complications.

Smoking weakens your immune system and increases your risk of respiratory infections.

UAB Department of Pediatrics Professor Dr. Susan Walley said smoking puts people at a higher risk of being admitted to intensive care units, placed on ventilators, and dying from COVID-related conditions.

Smoking e-cigarettes and vapes, popular among young adults, a group normally considered to be low risk, can also lead to complications.
