This month’s journal features a collection—largely letters and commentaries—on COVID-19 and smoking. We made a decision to
rapidly publish these, acknowledging that publishing work rapidly
carries risks in terms of the degree of scrutiny that can be afforded.
This has to be balanced against the need for evidence in the context
of a rapidly evolving pandemic involving a poorly understood virus.
These should therefore be considered preliminary, and in many cases
hypothesis-generating. They serve to provide an overview of key
questions in this rapidly evolving area.
