Scientists at the University of California in San Diego found that Smoking regular and e-cigarettes can lead to serious complications and death in patients with COVID-19. This was reported in an article published in the repository of preprints and bioRxiv.

The researchers came to the conclusion that the nicotine in tobacco cigarettes and flavors contained in vapuh contribute to inflammation. Tobacco Smoking also leads to enhanced expression of receptor angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), which is used by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 to penetrate into the cell. Electronic cigarettes this effect did not render.

Harmful effects of electronic cigarettes with nicotine is associated with inflammation of the respiratory tract, damage to epithelial tissues in the lungs, increased production of mucus, oxidative stress and DNA damage. According to scientists, the habit increases the risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome, requiring artificial ventilation of the lungs and cytokine storm, a systemic inflammatory response that can lead to multiple organ failure.
