The Coronavirus Is Deadlier For Men

The Chinese scientist has discovered that men and women are equally likely to be infected with the coronavirus, but fatalities in China have a rate of 2.8 % for men, compared to 1.7% for women, suggesting that men are more likely to die when infected.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that these statistics may understate the rate of infection in both groups. At the moment, the most possible reason for the gender difference can be attributed to something already known by scientists: “The female immune response is stronger than that of males.”

The exact reason for this is still unknown but it is believed that the higher levels of estrogen hormone in women or the fact that women have two X chromosomes, compared to men’s one X chromosomes are the cause.

Both of these factors contribute to immunity.
