Death rate of men 2.5 times that of women with Covid-19: study

Apr 29, 2020 19:05 IST

A Chinese study has found that while men and women are at equal risk of contracting Covid-19, men are more likely to suffer severe effects of the virus and have a higher risk of death. Published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health, the study assessed 53 patients the researchers had treated themselves and public data of 1056 patients. The findings recommended additional care may be required for older men or those with underlying conditions. They found that 70 per cent of the patients who died were men, meaning that men may have almost 2.5 times the death rate of women.
