Coronavirus UK cases: Research into why men more at risk with infection from COVID-19

COVID-19 cases of death in the UK now sits at a staggering 53,274 with a further 1.43 million infection cases. Scientists have discovered why men are more prevalent to severe infections and possibly even death as opposed to women when it comes to COVID-19.

Another study from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that boys are slightly more likely than girls to get COVID-19.

Yet this conclusion is unreliable.

Susan Hassig, an epidemiologist at Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine said: “Because of the way the study was conducted, it’s impossible to tell whether their sample reflects reality.

“I am not aware of any biologic factors that would make boys at more risk of coronavirus infection than girls.”

Girls and women’s stronger immune systems are largely due to genetics and sex hormones.

Females have two copies of the X chromosome, which contains many immune related genes while males only have one.

Oestrogen is obviously more abundant in women, which boosts the immune system, but testosterone slightly suppresses it.

That’s why some doctors are running trials in which they treat male COVID-19 patients with oestrogen and progesterone, another sex hormone higher in women.
