Double Counting


I just heard a comment that all the money people spend on cigarettes would suffice to pay for inoculating the entire world population against the corona virus. In Britain at least most of the money people spend on tobacco goes to the Government in taxes and so is already available for whatever good deed the Government is inclined to perform, so persuading smokers to give up, though in itself highly desirable, would not solve the problem of corona virus.
