Women have higher COVID-19 death risk

Date: 16 June 2020 Tags: Reports & Indices
  • While studies have shown that men are more prone to dying from COVID-19 than women globally, an analysis of case fatalities in India suggests that females may have a higher relative-risk of COVID-19 mortality in the country.
  • Scientists used crowdsourced data to provide early estimates for age-sex specific COVID-19 case fatality rate (CFR) for India.
  • While early evidence indicated that males have higher overall burden across the world, females have a higher relative-risk of COVID-19 mortality in India. Elderly males and females both display high mortality risk and require special care when infected.
