Men's Health: Men and COVID-19 - 2nd November 2021, 12.30pm to 1.30pm
As COVID-19 wreaks havoc across the globe, the UK has been
particularly hard hit. In particular, during the SARS-CoV outbreak men had a
higher case fatality rate of 21.9% as compared to 13.2% for females, and twice
as many male-to-female deaths in the 0–44 year age range.
It is too soon for certainty as to why men are more at risk,
but our knowledge of the biological, behavioural and socio-cultural factors
involved is growing and the picture is getting clearer. This lecture will focus
onto what is currently understood about the biological implications of being
male on the course of the disease.
This course is being run as an online training course. Details of how to
join the meeting will be emailed to you closer to the event.
There will be a 5 minute presentation from 12:30 to 12:35 by Tracie Symonds from Chiesi Ltd. Chiesi Ltd has sponsored the costs
associated with this meeting.
