Why is COVID-19 Hitting Men Harder Than Women?

Why is COVID-19 Hitting Men Harder Than Women?

Studies show that on top of affecting people above a certain age or with underlying health conditions, COVID-19 also seems to be striking men harder than women. We discuss the findings of these studies as well as interview an epidemiologist on why this virus appears to be sexist.
