With more than 6 million Americans have been infected with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), resulting in over 196,000 deaths as of September 2020.

While it’s still too soon to determine all of the definitive reasons for the differentiating survivability trends between men and women, both biological and nonbiological factors are certainly playing a role.

According to a study published by Frontiers in Public Health in April 2020, men and women were equally susceptible to COVID-19, but men were more prone to passing away as a result of the disease.

In one large subset, the number of male patients who died was 2.4 times higher than women (about 70% to 30%). The researchers found similar trends among the patients of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003.

According to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 surveillance report, 58% of all COVID-19-related deaths in Europe were men. The New York City Department of Health reported similar numbers, with males accounting for about 60% of COVID-19 deaths.
