Does the coronavirus unfairly target men?

Recommended Posts

It seems that older patients that die from the virus are men in a 3 to 1 ratio in Italy.

But more importantly, with every dollar of lost salary for an average man, a woman only loses 79 cents!

 

..sorry I had to.

Let's stop debating the virus like our opinion matters and just do our best to be rational and listen to the powers that be. Just wait till oil and water run out!

Also, for those of you that have procedures scheduled in the next few weeks:
Have clinics been cancelling? Which ones?

Would be good to know different responses for people looking at scheduling new procedures.

Lets not bring the wage gap into this. That’s a very long and complex argument. Once we start talking politics it will not end well lol

Yes,  I live in Italy and the death rate is very high and 70 percent  of the deceased are men and then there is the age group breakdowns also that indicate age a factor as does other illness. So, there must be some common denominators and perhaps an obvious issue is far more men than women smoke and rink in Italy also, and lung condition is vital and will make the difference between life and death for many.

The death rate was high even again yesterday but the new contaminated daily amount is slowing, so, hopefully going in the right direction and no-doubt the measures in place will be or have been adopted elsewhere as the only way to contain this.

 

Stay safe.

Yes the wage gap is a myth, that was tongue in cheek. Unfortunately the part about the virus killing men, who tend to be sicker as we age regardless. 

This will ebb in the summer, but then we will be hit by a second wave in the fall.

Sorry guys, this is the new reality. Small business with close, larger corporations will consolidate, socialism will prosper and fingers are going to be pointed.

And oh yeah, a lot of people are going to die. There is a decent chance that someone you know is going to die this year from the disease.

The paradox of contingency: You never can know if you overreacted, but it's absolutely clear when you didn't do enough.

Definitely seems to be affecting men more.


I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

Can someone please point this out to all the women who think men are privileged.

Mother nature is never fair. Life isn't fair. Let's not call a virus unfair. It doesn't really choose who it gets to infect. If you ask the virus, it'd probably like to infect everyone alive, animals and humans alike xD

"The paradox of contingency: You never can know if you overreacted, but it's absolutely clear when you didn't do enough."

Actually you can know and by numerous metrics, economic or otherwise.  This "whatever the cost" mentality without intelligent consideration of outcomes to a reaction or cost/benefits is going to ruin lives and economies one way or the other. It all depends on how you define best case results with a set of actions in which all results appear bad and all come with risks. It may be clear you didn't do enough for a particular result, but maybe you inhibited another. 

All a little too political for a hairloss forum maybe, but I can't imagine the industry is doing to well at the moment or many people here are actually having procedures.

Also lol at forcing gender culture war issues into the equation, but the wage gap is most definitely a myth in the manner typically suggested (barring specific cases) and adding hairloss to the equation,, if the government is going to pay for IVF treatment for a couple of Lesbians, gender reassignment surgery or be paying for tampons they should be giving out free finasteride and hair transplants too.

I think my point stands. If we respond with draconian measures and stop the spread of the virus, folks like Kramer will say it was unnecessary and we overdid it. But if we don't do enough the devastation will be painfully obvious.
