The increase in infections among men in England may be due to Euro-Human-Science and Technology monitoring

The successful progress of the English team at the European Football Championship may be one of the reasons why the coronavirus in England is spreading faster among men than among women.

This is indicated by data obtained by scientists from the Royal University of London, wrote the BBC news website. At the same time, their study confirmed that England is facing the third wave of the covid epidemic.

The REACT study between 24 June and 5 July tested more than 47,000 volunteers from across England. The data collected show that the number of infections has risen sharply in all age groups up to 75, especially among young people. At the same time, it was confirmed that the higher rate of infections was not reflected in the increased number of hospitalized patients or deaths.

According to the study, vaccinees are at lower risk of becoming infected with coronavirus. Both doses of the vaccine provided 72 percent protection against infection.

Testing of volunteers at REACT, one of the largest studies of its kind in England, also showed that men had a 30 percent higher risk of infection than women. “It could be that watching football results in men being more socially active than usual,” said report author Steven Riley.
