      I guess I shouldn't be surprised that wildfire smoke makes Covid worse, but somehow this still kinda blew my mind.

        Same. First I was like WTF but then it made sense that smoke would weaken your lungs which then makes a virus which attacks your lungs worse. The hypothesis that the smoke would carry the virus seems to be a bit far fetched though
