A recent study has revealed that in comparison to women, men have 30% higher risk of dying from COVID-19.
The study analysed the link between common patient characteristics and the risk of dying from the novel coronavirus infection.
Hospitalised COVID-19 patients have more risk of dying if they are male, the study revealed.
Anthony D.Harris, the corresponding author, said, “Knowledge is power in many ways, so I think understanding which hospitalised COVID-19 patients are at highest risk of mortality can help guild difficult treatment decisions”.
The researchers believe that healthcare providers could consider these risks when determining which COVID-19 patients could benefit the most from antibody therapist that, if given in the first few days of the infection, can reduce hospitalisation risk.
