In Italy, Coronavirus Takes a Higher Toll on Men

The coronavirus is striking, and felling, more Italian men than women, and some experts are warning that being male may be a risk factor for the illness, just as older age is.
The Italian trend mirrors one seen in China, where men were more likely than women to die of Covid-19. In Italy, more men than women have been infected, and a higher proportion of infected men have died. Some 8 percent of male patients died, compared with 5 percent of female patients, according to a Higher Health Institute of Rome analysis of 25,058 cases.
