On one hand, it is known that COVID-19 spreads primarily through water droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks, and on the other hand it is also known from available experimental data that cigarette smoke particles are hygroscopic, i.e., they can act as active condensation nuclei and then can potentially act as aerolizer agent of C...
