Old people are more vulnerable
Originally, it is an autoimmune disease, which largely affects only those with weak immunity. Due to any serious disease, the human body is weakened and the immune system is badly affected. Since you are not healthy enough in terms of immunity, you become an easy target for the virus. If you look at the figures, most of the deaths due to coronavirus have occurred in old people, who had pre-existing problems related to diabetes, poor heart health, high blood pressure, etc.
Elderly people can easily get infected with Novel Coronavirus because of aging The immunity of the human body is affected which weakens over time. Therefore, people above 45 years of age should also take extra care of themselves and keep it closed until the virus is completely destroyed.

Using tobacco products can increase your chance of getting #COVID19 ❗️Bringing your 👐 to your 👄 can transfer the virus into your body ❗️Sharing tobacco products can transmit the virus between people ❗️Tobacco weakens your respiratory system making you more vulnerable to the #coronavirus
Wondering how smoking is related to coronavirus? There is a post by the WHO, which explains the risk of COVID-19 on smokers. The post’s caption reads, “Using tobacco products can increase your chances of COVID19. Bringing your hands to your mouth can transfer the virus to your body. Sharing tobacco products can transmit the virus among people. At the same time, the habit of taking tobacco makes your respiratory system weak, which makes you prone to coronavirus.
It should be treated as if, first of all, you are buying cigarettes or tobacco from a vendor (an outsider) who contacts at least hundreds of people. Imagine a coronavirus-positive person who came in contact with the seller and they exchanged cigarettes. Technically, the seller fell victim to the infection and then the chain moved forward. In this way, it is the principle of the coronavirus series.
In another hypothesis, imagine that you have shared your stuff with someone and that person has the virus. The virus was transmitted and with smoking, it entered your body. This is why shared smoking or tobacco products are extremely risky these days. Therefore, the World Health Organization has suggested easy ways to avoid coronavirus.
