    How many smokers were among those so-called scientists? We must know the TRUTH!

    Glad to see someone is on the case

    P.S. "Endogenous" means "produced internally by the body", just as I surmised, as opposed to "exogenous".

    2020-06-08 MORE evidence smokers are at less risk of Covid-19: Study of 90,000 infected patients in Mexico reveals adults addicted to cigarettes are 23% LESS likely to catch the virus

    * The research also showed smokers are less likely to suffer adverse outcomes

    * It adds to the theory that smokers are somehow protected from the coronavirus

    * International researchers have reported a low prevalence of smokers in patients

    * Scientists say nicotine may be able to block the coronavirus from entering cells

    * Doctors are keen to start trials of nicotine patches, but advise kicking the habit

    As soon as smoker is admitted to hospital they will generally deny that they are are smoker, that alone will bugger up statistics.

    Corona viruses have been around for many years. Why should Covid-19 react any differently to carbon monoxide?

    Yes, I'd concede that may very well be a significant effect.

    But if tobacco is as bad as they say then can't a chest X ray show up who has been smoking?

    If they ask to be wheeled outside every couple of hours, the stats people should be able to work out what's going on...

    Remember: don't try to smoke whilst on oxygen.

    It doesn't end well.
    When the fun stops, STOP.
