Authorities should ban both heat-not-burn tobacco and e-cigarettes, as it is misleading to say the former is healthier than the latter, Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health said.

The council said government statistics showed that teenagers in Hong Kong smoke heated tobacco more frequently than adults.

Council chairman Henry Tong Sau-chai said society has a strong consensus on a total ban on alternative smoking products.

"However, it has been almost three years since the policy address first announced a ban on alternative smoking products," he said.
