I am afraid I do not believe that this lecture coincides with reality of severity of disease in covid patients. Smokers and non smokers seem from real data to have same chance of severity of disease.
The real main risk factors are age, hypertension and diabetes
Evidence to support this:-
Presenting Characteristics, Comorbidities, and Outcomes Among 5700 Patients Hospitalized With COVID-19 in the New York City Area Article (PDF Available) in JAMA The Journal of the American Medical Association · April 2020
