“An ominous fact on world no tobacco day – 2021: smoking kills more people than covid-19” Smoking is the leading cause of
preventable death in the world, killing more people than HIV, AIDS, and tuberculosis combined. The World Health Organization
(WHO) has warned that the global tobacco epidemic is now the biggest public health threat of our time, and that the number of
smokers is projected to reach nearly 1 billion by the year 2021.
“On World No Tobacco Day (WNTD), we mark the anniversary of the world’s first public health treaty, the WHO Framework
Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), which came into effect on May 31, 2003. The FCTC was adopted by the United Nations
General Assembly with a resolution of 188 countries in support. It is the first global treaty to recognize the public health
importance of tobacco control and to provide a framework for its implementation.
The effective ways to reduce the number of smoking-related deaths include raising the price of cigarettes, implementing
strict tobacco advertising bans, and raising the minimum legal age for buying cigarettes. Smoking rates have been declining
in many countries, but they continue to exceed the rates in many European countries.
The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report in May 2019 that concluded that smoking kills more people than
pandemic-19 (COVID-19). The report found that smoking is responsible for more than half of all cancer deaths and more than
two-thirds of all lung cancer deaths. The report also found that smoking is responsible for more than 5 million deaths each
year. The report called for increased warnings on cigarette packages and for tobacco companies to stop making profits from
smoking. The WHO said that these steps would help to reduce the number of smoking-related deaths.
The tobacco industry spends billions of dollars each year on advertising, promotions, and other activities that promote
smoking. These activities include advertising on television, in magazines, and on the Internet. The tobacco industry also
spends billions of dollars each year on research and development of new products. The trend in Africa is that more and more
people are using tobacco products. In 2017, there were an estimated 27 million smokers in Africa. This represents about half
of all smokers in the world. The tobacco industry has been working to increase the use of tobacco products in Africa for
The industry is also working to increase the price of tobacco products in Africa. In some cases, these price discounts are so
large that they make tobacco products cheaper than water. This is dangerous for both smokers and nonsmokers. It is also a
marketing strategy designed to increase the use of tobacco products. Retailers in Africa are also selling tobacco products at
a lower price than in other parts of the world.
