COVID-19: advice for smokers and vapers

Public Health England (PHE) has released advice for smokers and vapers that can be used by healthcare professionals to encourage patients to quit smoking in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The guidance draws attention to the impact of second-hand smoke on the heart and lung health of those exposed, especially children who have less well-developed airways, lungs, and immune systems.
