Smoking and coronavirus

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory infection that affects the lungs and airways.

Smokers may have a higher risk of severe symptoms or complications if they get coronavirus (COVID-19).

This is because smoking damages the lungs and weakens the immune system, making it harder for your body to fight infections.

Know the risks

Let’s quit smoking. Together

Did you know you’re three times as likely to quit successfully if you use a combination of help from a specialist stop smoking advisor and a stop smoking aid, like nicotine replacement or an e-cigarette?

Stop smoking services across Greater Manchester are still open during the coronavirus outbreak and offering increased support online and over the phone to make sure everyone can get the help they need. You can also get help to quit smoking from your GP or pharmacist.
