Coronavirus, the deadly virus which has been taking a toll at the global health scenarios started posing some serious challenges to the health experts and scientists across the countries while the death toll kept increasing exponentially. Developed nations like China and America are racing for the vaccine, as small countries like Cuba are also contributing to contain the novel virus.
Meanwhile, a number of studies simultaneously going on in the number of labs across the globe have been revealing some groundbreaking facts over the Coronavirus. According to one such studies, Coronavirus appears to pose a particular threat to men just as being older is. Many of the health experts supported this argument, warning that being male that too above 40 years of age may be a risk factor for the illness.
While over 25,058 Corona positive cases were taken into consideration for the analysis by the Higher Health Institute of Rome, 8 per cent of male patients died, compared with 5 per cent of female patients. According to the observations, women have more robust immune systems than men who also smoke in higher numbers. Coronavirus also tends to be lenient to children as they are more prone to flu which frequently boosts the immunity.
These studies and data on infection and death rates-broken down by sex and age are now coming to the health staff across the globe making it easy to plan and monitor critical care capacity in hospitals.
