Covid-19 live updates: Virus killed 65000 more men than women in U.S. through August, study finds – The Washington Post

It found that, while age remains the main risk factor for covid-19 mortality, the gender gap is important and caused by “a combination of factors, which may differ by race, class, geography and other variables.”
