A recent study conducted at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) has suggested that men have a higher risk of dying from the coronavirus (30 per cent) than women of the same age and health status. Furthermore, it reported an elevated risk for hospitalised Covid-19 patients if they were men, said the study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. The researchers carried out an extensive study involving 67,000 hospitalised Covid-19 patients in 613 hospitals across the United States.

They also stated that people who were obese, and suffered from hypertension and diabetes, were at a greater risk of dying from the virus. The study observed that coronavirus patients, whose age ranged between 20 to 39, with these conditions, had the biggest difference in their risk of dying compared to their healthier peers. "Knowledge is power in many ways; so I think understanding which hospitalised Covid-19 patients are at highest risk of mortality can help guide difficult treatment decisions," said study corresponding author Anthony D Harris.
