Kwesi Pratt, Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Speaking to host Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, expressed how suprised he was after disscovering that smoking wee helps in both prevention and recovery against the current pandemic.
“It blew my mind. It blew my mind completely. When the disease started, we were told that if you smoke, the likelihood to contract the disease is very strong and your recovery is not as good as the non-smokers and so on…Just last week, according to a French scientist’s research, they have discovered that nicotine is good against COVID-19 meaning smoking marijuana is helpful. So, how do you deal with this situation because the earlier protocol was that smokers should stop smoking? French scientists are on the other hand saying smoking helps because the nicotine is good.” He stated .
Nicotine is an energizer and alkaloid poison in tobacco and utilized for smoking.
In spite of the fact that nicotine may help in battling the infection, specialists have advised that smoking is not legalised in Ghana.
