Let’s be honest, there isn’t much “good” that has come out of the coronavirus pandemic so far. Except for this one stat I came across today that was kind of mind blowing.
Since the pandemic started apparently people have been quitting smoking in record numbers as a result. According to this study out of England, more people have quit smoking in the first six months of this year than any other time on record. 41% of those people say that it’s because of the pandemic.
I’ve never been a smoker, but this does make a lot of sense. Especially since COVID-19 affects the respiratory system so severely. That’s more than enough to scare people out of their habit.
