Misperceptions about COVID-19 and nicotine
In 2020, misinformation about the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic flooded online news and social media outlets. Early reports claimed that smokers were less likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 and that nicotine prevents infection with COVID-19. Research to date does not support these supposed benefits of nicotine on the respiratory disease, instead indicating that smoking increases the odds of disease progression and severe symptoms. Vaping and using smokeless tobacco products are also likely risk factors for infection and progression of COVID-19. Another theory claimed that chemicals in vapor from e-cigarettes sterilize the air, offering protection from COVID infection. The claim was taken from a very old study and promoted as evidence to support vaping during the pandemic.

Truth Initiative researchers surveyed 1,225 young adults between 18-34 in June 2021 about belief in these claims and about basic facts about nicotine, as well as their use of specific social media platforms.
