In most countries, men’s percentage is higher than women’s percentage.
Does Corona have a special grudge on men? A study says yes! From a study in ‘Western Journal of Emergency Medicine’, health experts are saying that men are more prone to Covid-19 than women.The reason for this is the presence of only one X chromosome in men and two in women.According to the physicians, these X chromosomes have majority immune-boosting genes.
Hence, women are less vulnerable to the Corona Virus.But there is one thing that young women have to consider.
From the statistics of Corona cases in Telangana, it is found that young women of the 20-30 age group are more prone to Covid-19.Though men’s cases are more, out of 34% of women’s Covid-19 cases, 22% of patients belong to the 20-30 age group.
Interestingly, the percentages of old women above 60 years and children below 10 are less, probably they are following the stay at home guidelines perfectly.If we go with the statistics, the age group between 30-40 is the highest sufferer of Covid-19.
The study which carried in 56 countries states that almost 48 countries have more men susceptible to Covid-19.Also, the fatality rate of men is much more to women.
