Coronavirus Has Killed More
Males Than Females Worldwide In Italy, which has registered the
most deaths, 70 percent are men.
64 percent of the fatalities in China,
where the disease originated, are male.
Men also make up 54 percent of
the recorded deaths in South Korea.
This comes despite South Korea saying that
61 percent of their total infections are women.
In some cases, scientists say the
female immune system is better
equipped to handle a viral infection, which is mainly due to
the body's respiratory tract.
Compared to women, men
drink and smoke more
in Italy and China.
This leads to more respiratory problems,
which increase the chances of death
from the coronavirus.
