I’ve been interested in the story that smoking protects against coronavirus. So I searched Google news for “smokers protected against coronavirus”. And got the opposite report:
Smokers told to quit now as they are ’14 times more at risk from coronavirus’
A report from Wuhan was mentioned, but no link provided
Smokers urged to quit now ‘more than ever’ or face greater risk from coronavirus
A study in the New England Journal of Medicine was mentioned, but no link provided.
Smokers appear to be at higher risk from coronavirus – expert
A “small” study is cited, but no link provided.
All the stories warn against smoking.
There’s no mention whatsoever of stories saying the opposite.
