Posted on 21 Jul 2020
Protect your health, your family and the NHS
We all need to try to protect ourselves and our families right now, but especially if you smoke
Smoking damages the lungs and the immune system, making it harder to fight off infections.
It also increases your risks of heart disease, diabetes, COPD, stroke and cancer.
That means if you do get coronavirus, your symtoms could be more severe.
Your health starts to improve from the moment you stop.
It's never too late.
