疫情提升烟民戒烟意愿

Smokers have become more willing to quit amid the COVID-19 outbreak as health becomes the first priority, according to a recent survey and related studies by Fudan University's Health Communication Institute in Shanghai.

上海复旦健康传播研究所最近的一项调查和相关研究显示,新冠疫情期间,健康成为人们最关心的事,烟民们戒烟意愿变得强烈。

The online survey, which was published on Saturday ahead of this year's World No Tobacco Day on Sunday, showed that around 18% of respondents said they had a stronger willingness to quit smoking after the epidemic outbreak, and 14% said they had attempted to abandon smoking in recent months.

5月31日是今年的世界无烟日。这项5月30日公布的线上调查显示,约18%的受访者表示在疫情暴发后戒烟意愿更强烈,14%的受访者表示最近几个月已尝试戒烟。

The average number of cigarettes smoked per day decreased from 14.2 to 13.5, according to the survey, which had nearly 1,500 respondents from 31 provincial-level regions.

这项对来自31个省级区域的近1500名受访者进行的调查显示,烟民日均吸烟量从14.2支下降至13.5支。

The top three reasons to reduce smoking were a higher awareness of health during the epidemic; the inappropriateness to smoke at home during isolation; and the inconvenience of smoking as one is required to wear a mask outdoors.

其减少吸烟的三大原因为:疫情期间的健康意识更高、居家隔离期间不适合吸烟、以及在户外戴口罩吸烟不方便。
