Alcohol is a harmful substance that has an adverse effect on almost every single organ of your body, and the risk of damage to your health increases with each drink consumed. Alcohol use, especially heavy use, weakens the immune system and reduces its ability to cope with infectious diseases, including COVID-19. Heavy alcohol use is a risk factor for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), one of the most severe complications of COVID-19.
