Smoking is a risk factor for infection - Bidzina Kulumbegov

Tobacco consumption is a risk factor for COVID-19, said allergist-immunologist Bidzina Kulumbegov in the interview to “Dgis Kurieri”.

“10 months after the spread of the coronavirus, the world has agreed that smoking is a risk factor. Cigarettes indirectly contribute to the development of various diseases. Smoking is a risk and I want to ask everyone to use this chance - a pandemic and stop using tobacco”, - said Bidzina Kulumbegov.
