Suara.com – An official analysis found that currently more women are dying from the new strain of the Covid-19 corona virus than the first batch.
Experts suspect that currently women are more vulnerable to the new strain of the Covid-19 corona virus which is rampant in the UK.
Apart from women, the deaths from the coronavirus among whites are also much higher than before. Meanwhile, deaths among people from ethnic minorities have actually decreased.
Dr. David Strain, senior clinical lecturer at the University of Exeter, says there are a number of hypothetical reasons for this. One of the causes is changes to the corona virus.

“If we imagine everyone has a certain threshold for viral tolerance. Then, the amount of virus they encounter is above that threshold, then the exposure turns into a disease,” said Dr. David quoted from The Sun.
According to Dr. David, now the corona virus is more violent. So that people who were previously considered strong enough suddenly become vulnerable to being infected with the corona virus.
However, young people and people under 60 are still at relatively low risk of dying from the coronavirus. Even doctors say those who are hospitalized due to the corona virus are also more now.
Dr. David also warned about changes in behavior during the coronavirus pandemic. Many of the coronavirus patients are younger and white women lulled by a false sense of security.
“Most people will take steps that are at risk of being infected with the coronavirus when they hear that you are already at low risk,” he said.

In fact, the number of deaths from the corona virus in men is still higher than for women as a whole. However, there are differences in the death rate from the corona virus in women.
In the first wave of the coronavirus, the death rate in men was 61 percent and women 39 percent. Currently, the death rate for men is 57 percent and for women 43 percent.
Various studies have explained why men are much more likely to die from the coronavirus, a genetic difference that affects the immune system.
Some experts say male blood makes it easier for the coronavirus to infect cells. Men have more of the enzyme ACE2, which the virus uses to enter cells and start replicating.
“The more of this enzyme, the less virus you need to cause disease,” explains Dr David.
But, Dr. David said this new strain of the coronavirus may be easier to cause disease in those with lower ACE2 levels.
