Leela Adwani |Feb 03, 2020

Men are reported to be susceptible to CoronaVirus in a recent study. The study, initially published in the weekly medical journal The Lancet, was carried out by a group of doctors in China.

Coronavirus outbreak is currently by far the most controversial topic which is discussed right, left and center, be it on social media, daily news portals or even in our everyday talks. Recently, reports claim that men are more prone to the coronavirus than women, as per a study on 99 patients who are receiving medical treatment in Wuhan.

The study, initially published in the weekly medical journal The Lancet, was reportedly carried out by a group of doctors at Jinyintan Hospital in Wuhan teaming up with researchers of Shanghai’s Ruijin Hospital and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The fact is that this finding was similar to the observations that were made earlier saying men having underlying health issues were susceptible to this virus. However, the latest study seems to be more wide-recognized as it was conducted on a bigger sample.

According to the China Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on average 1.2 men were infected for every 1.0 women, considering the actual numbers of patients affected.

Not just this, the study also went on to issue a warning that the early treatment and identification for this illness were relatively essential since an increasing number of patients had to suffer from organ failure and complications.
