Does Nicotine protects against Covid-19?

Different studies seem to indicate that smokers are less vulnerable for Covid-19. This could be related to protection via Nicotine.

A Chinese study published at the end of March in the New England Journal of Medicine that suggested only 12.6% of 1,000 people infected with the virus were smokers while the number of smokers in China is around 28%.

In France, figures from Paris hospitals showed that of 11,000 patients admitted to hospital with Covid-19, 8.5% were smokers. The total number of smokers in France is estimated at around 25.4%.
