Significantly more males die from covid-19 than females. This is partly due to genetics, but on the other hand to the "unmanly" image of health care and role stereotypes
The Corona pandemic is – also – a gender ie, because far more men than women die in connection with Covid-19, while more suspected cases of severe side effects of vaccines occur in women. Both of these reflect findings from gender-based health research. solutions were gender-sensitive health education for boys and men and greater consideration of female biology in the development of drugs and vaccines.
In principle, Covid-19 is and remains a viral disease, sometimes serious, and it is not the fault of anyone to suffer – or even to die – from it. In this respect, it is not about clarifying the question of guilt, but about a better understanding of the effects of the pandemic, including those on subjective health and infection prophylaxis. In this regard, the greater involvement of men among those officially registered as having died in connection with Covid-19 is striking. According to the RKI are considered "deceased in connection with Covid-19", who tested positive for Sars-Cov-2 by PCR test.
