30 November: Tobacco, Smoking and Vaping in the context of COVID-19 Webinar


The COVID-19 pandemic affected all areas of public health and had caused much controversy among experts, authorities, and the general public. Nearly 2 years after the start of this pandemic, many factors have changed, including smoking behavior and the tobacco industry’s response to the pandemic. All these factors ultimately influenced the outcomes of many studies. With over 3 million deaths from COVID-19 and over 8 million deaths from tobacco use, it is important to understand the link between the two.

Therefore, on 30 November 2021from 13:00 to 14:30 CET, within the 2021 Online Edition of European Conference on Tobacco Control, the ENSP organizes the webinar “Tobacco, Smoking and Vaping in the context of COVID-19”, a webinar that will gather multiple case studies aiming to showcase the role of smoking in the pandemic, observed in different places from Europe and beyond. This symposium will try to clarify the evolution of smoking and vaping during the pandemic, from smoking patterns and the vaping situation to COVID-19 mortality rate due to tobacco consumption and in general, all in light of the tobacco industry’s responses to these problems.
