FDA and federal government statements on smoking, vaping and COVID-19

March 2020: United States & Global

Letter from the Attorney General of Iowa and 12 others to the Food and Drug Administration on its statements on vaping and COVID-19, 31 March 2020 [link]. In its communications on vaping, smoking and COVID-19, FDA must improve:

  1. A credible process for communicating risk information (not ad hoc emails to news services)
  2. It must reflect the evidence – which is limited – and beware of unintended consequences
  3. It has no basis for changing advice, which should be to quit smoking using whatever method works, including by vaping
