I would like to see more definitive studies. After all, we are hearing of suggestions to consume disinfectants, as well as other desperate measures.

Someday we will look back on this time and shake our heads in wonderment.

Currently they do not have reliable numbers of infected persons. There may be many people who are infected but do not know it because of having only mild symptoms and not going to the doctor. The symptoms caused by smoking related health issues could simply mask symptoms of a covid infection. I am really sceptical about it.
Maybe we have to prepare for dealing with shortages of tobacco products and ointments for muscle pain (some contain nicotine) in the near future wink.

So I've heard. In fact, my understanding is that bit of advice comes from the highest levels of government.

Personally, I think I'll wait and let those who trust that particular source of information to try it first.

Whilst it's true don't have reliable numbers of infected. That still doesn't make sense why smokers are under represented in confirmed cases.

The assumption was that smokers were at higher risk, so would be over represented amongst the worst outcomes.

Still interesting to see how further study pans out.
