Patricia Arquette Goes 'Cold Turkey' In Response to Coronavirus

“We don’t want to be on ventilators. We gotta do it cold turkey.”

Patricia Arquette has decided to make a big change for her health amid the growing coronavirus pandemic.

The Oscar winner announced on Twitter late Sunday night that she has given up smoking in response to COVID-19 and welcomed fans to join her in being healthier.

“As COVID-19 attacks the lungs one of the most important things you can do is to quit smoking and vaping,” she tweeted. “I’m in day 3. Care to join?”

A fellow smoker replied: “After 24 yrs of smoking, I am trying. Let me rephrase that i will quit smoking. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone in this important health decision.”

Patricia followed up and wrote: “We can do this this f-cking virus attacks lungs. We don’t want to be on ventilators. We gotta do it cold turkey.”

Those with pre-existing conditions such as asthma, immune disorders, heart conditions and the elderly are at higher risk of hospitalization due to coronavirus.
