Alcohol and Covid
Alcohol is a harmful substance that has an adverse effect on almost every single
organ of your body, and the risk of damage to your health increases with each
drink consumed. Alcohol use, especially heavy use, weakens the immune system
and reduces its ability to cope with infectious diseases, including COVID-19. Heavy
alcohol use is a risk factor for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), one of
the most severe complications of COVID-19.
