Coronavirus takes a higher toll on men

Coronavirus mortality rate is twice as high among men in Italy as it is among women, the White House’s coronavirus task force coordinator confirmed on Friday. Dr. Deborah Birx, however, added that no age group or gender is immune, and that mild symptoms are not equivalent to immunity. According to Italy’s health research agency, 60% of coronavirus cases and 70% of deaths have been in men.

Interesting. Perhaps due to the more consistent traditional family roles in China the death toll of men is higher??

Would be interesting to know if it really is man beeing weaker to this virus or if it is man not caring as much for their haelth. Also man might be leaving the hous more. Stereotypical but still true for many countries.

I imagine it's because dudes carry the fat around their chest and that'll help constrict the airway. But that's just speculation I don't know how fat people are in China? I guess this is one advantage to you know women carrying weight around their hips. For the record I am taking the piss
