coronavirus kills more men than women

Worried About Coronavirus? You Should Be—Especially If You’re a Guy.

With nearly 100,000 cases of cases of coronavirus (also referred to as COVID-19) reported around the world—and more than 3,000 deaths—we all have every reason to be worried. Fortunately, scientists and public health experts in dozens of countries are working hard to keep this infection from spreading further than it already has—a pretty tall order, considering how easy it is for people to travel long distances, transporting the virus with them and infecting others before, during, and after their trip.

While the battle to find a cure (and a vaccine) is definitely good news for everyone, it’s especially welcome for those of us who are male. “Boys and men are more likely than girls and women to contract the virus, they have more severe reactions, and they die in both greater numbers and higher rates,” says Dr. Salvatore Giorgianni, Science Advisor for Men’s Health Network, a DC-based non-profit.
