  • The Raging Debate On E-Cigarettes; Is Africa Missing Out?

  • Debate is raging globally around smoke-free alternatives, such as e-cigarettes, which are being presented by tobacco companies as safer options for smokers.

  • European Smokers, Vapers Still Get Their Fix During Lockdowns

  • European governments are ensuring that smokers and vapers can keep up their habits while they hunker down at home in lockdowns to stem the spread of coronavirus.

    Italy, France, Spain and Switzerland are keeping tobacco kiosks open along with essential shops such as grocery stores and pharmacies, while the rest are closed.
