ABOUT SOME FEATURES OF DISEASE DEVELOPMENT
Keywords:Covid-19, Gender, Age
The aim of our study was to determine the role of gender as a factor in the development of disease during infection with COVID-19 and whether the age of the patient along with gender was an important factor in causing lethal outcomes and the infection was much more severe in men, than in women. At the same time irresponsible attitude among men reversibly affect their undertaking of preventive measures such as frequent handwashing, wearing of face mask, and stay at home orders. It is means that being male is also a factor. Our study showed that in people over 60 years of age, mortality was higher in men. However, with age, this difference became less noticeable due to certain circumstances. Finally, we would like to point out that, in our opinion, this new disease of the 21st century, COVID-19, has once again proven that the male and female immunity are significantly different from each other, and this gives us reason to believe that research in this direction will further develop in the future.
