Coronavirus Disease: E-cigarette vapor is associated with an increased risk of Covid-19 in adolescents and young adults

E-cigarette use is associated with an increased risk of Covid-19 infection in adolescents and young adults, according to a new US scientific research. The study is the first to focus on the link between evaporation and Covid-19 disease, especially among young people during the pandemic.……….

The research, which analyzed data on young people who tested for coronavirus in the US, shows that those who were vaporizers, they were five to seven times more likely to become infected with the virus, compared to those who were not e-cigarette users.

Investigators, led by Bonnie Halpern-Felser, Professor of Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine, California, studied data on 4.351 aged people 13 until 24 years and made the relevant publication in the journal for adolescent health “Journal of Adolescent Health”. As Halpern-Felser said, "Teenagers and young adults should know that if they use e-cigarettes, most likely to be at immediate risk of Covid-19, because they damage their lungs ".

"Young people may think that age protects them from getting the coronavirus or that they will not have Covid-19 symptoms., but the evidence shows that this is not the case for those who are vaporizers. New study shows quite clearly that young people who smoke or are dual users - vaporizers and smokers- face increased risk. The increase in risk is not small, but great ", added lead researcher Dr. Sivani Mathur Gaiha.

The research found that those young people who smoked and smoked at the same time as before 30 days, were almost five times more likely to develop Covid-19 symptoms (cough, fever, weariness, shortness of breath etc.) and were almost three times more likely to be tested for Covid-19. Among those who had taken the test, vaporizers were five times more likely to be diagnosed with Covid-19 than,what non-vaporizers. Also the users of both electronic and traditional cigarettes in the previous ones 30 days were almost seven times more likely to be diagnosed with Covid-19. No correlation was found between Covid-19 diagnosis and traditional cigarette smoking in the previous month.

The researchers reported that, following these findings, await the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) further tighten regulations on the use of vaporizers sold to young people. As Halpner-Felser pointed out, "It's time to tell everyone: if you are a vaporizer, you put yourself at risk for Covid-19 and other lung diseases ".
