SMOKERS are being urged to quit now or risk suffering more serious complications if they develop Covid-19.

Leading Welsh respiratory consultant is urging Keir Lewis, Professor of Respiratory Medicine at Swansea University, warns that smokers could be at greater risk of going on to lung illness from the Coronavirus.

Smokers already have weakened lung defences as a result of their habit, damaging the cells protecting their nose and upper and lower airways.

 lung defences heal quite quickly so giving up smoking even now could significantly improve smokers’ ability to defend from the infection and also recover from the condition by strengthening their body’s immune system.

Improvements in lung defences occur within days of giving up.

PUBLIC Health Wales has reported a sharp rise in smokers quitting amidst fears over Covid-19.

Compared to recent weeks last week saw a 51 per cent increase in referrals to NHS Wales’ Help Me Quit service following warnings that smokers face an increased risk of suffering severe complications from Covid-19.

According to health experts, smokers are more at risk from the virus because they have weakened lung defences as a result of smoking which damages the cells protecting their nose, upper and lower airways.
If they quit now however, they can improve their ability to fight the infection.

“Help Me Quit are responding to the dramatic rise in demand by ramping up telephone support and ensuring all smokers are given the support they need to quit this deadly habit.”

Since this season’s campaign started in September 2020, 294,700 people have had their jab to date, which represents an increase in all eligible groups on previous years.

With the Covid-19 vaccination programme also now well underway, the health board has used this achievement to plan large scale vaccination campaigns.

Teresa Owen, executive director of Public Health, said: “This is a significant achievement in the effort to keep the public safe against this other potentially serious, and even deadly virus.
