M-F Immune System Differences, 5

Dr Arlene TaylorBiology and sociology both play a part in males having a higher risk of mortality from COVID-19. Older men and those with preexisting and chronic conditions, are at higher risk of not surviving a COVID-19 infection. Males who genuinely care about others need to initiate self-care sooner than later and ongoing! Encourage the males you know to take extra care at preventing the disease at all costs. This means strictly following social/physical distancing guidelines and personal hygiene—especially handwashing, to prevent catching the virus. Early diagnosis and treatment with what is available is also critical. This is my brain’s opinion: better to be TOO CAREFUL than too lax. I want all the males, especially those I know personally and care deeply about, to be alive and well when this is all over.
