Is COVID-19 deadlier for men than women?


A recent study out of China found the coronavirus fatality rate for men was 2.8%, compared to 1.7% for women. Another Chinese analysis found men accounted for 60% of COVID‐19 patients. When Italy recently reported the country’s death toll, 72% of those who had died were men, according to the BBC. One study put the number even higher, with men making up 80% of people who had passed away in Italy.
