WHO Says Drinking Alcohol Increases Risk of Coronavirus Infection

As if the news couldn't be more of a bummer....the World Health Organization says that drinking alcohol can not only increase your risk of contracting the coronavirus, it could make it worse.

According to WHO, "alcohol compromises the body’s immune system and increases the risk of adverse health outcomes."

WHO goes on to recommend that world leaders should limit the public's access to alcohol during the coronavirus pandemic.

Not super great news for most...especially as recent Nielsen data has shown that alcohol sales in the US have grown 22% during the pandemic.
