Women of reproductive age are less vulnerable to coronavirus due to the high protection provided by nature. This was stated by Zukhra Pavlova, Candidate of Medical Sciences, endocrinologist of the Moscow State University clinic, in an interview with Sputnik radio.
“Women are more valuable objects for nature. She may be pregnant and may be breastfeeding. Nature protects women more, and as an endocrinologist it is noticeable to me, ”the doctor said.
According to her, global statistics show that men are more susceptible to coronavirus disease. Pavlova cited the example of a study in which ACE2 receptors were found in the tissues of male reproductive organs, through which the virus enters the body.
She admitted that the gender shift in the incidence rate towards men is due, among other things, to this factor.
