A rather... novel article. Yes it's a the DM and yes its claims are, err, questionable but amusing nevertheless.

Conclusion: smoking hasn’t been proven to be beneficial (or even directly harmful) to combating COVID-19, but further study should be done into its effect on ACE-2 levels (just in case anybody misses a part and starts excessively smoking).

Still an interesting read. Hope the proper vaccine will be out soon, it’s crazy how it could take so long considering how advanced we supposedly are and how many people are working on it.

One of the army of armchair epidemiologists/doctors that have popped out of the wood work :lol:
It is mildly interesting the correlation certain studies and front line workers have noted though.

Being able to live in the country in Normandy probably is the best protection for David Hockney.

Sometimes brute force just doesn’t work.

I mean I'd try Vitamin D first, but if you want to take up a hobby that will destroy your lungs in order to avoid a disease that will destroy your lungs, go for it.

This might be your first rational and non-propaganda post. Well done. Here's a rep.

That's nice, at least it would seem to not be a major risk factor, not a fun time for giving up.
